It's a paved road, so... However, the access road down to Arcadia from here has a section where the road closes to one lane near the bottom. Be cautious on that road.

Ridiculously dry and slippery with a heavy acorn layer on top of loose dry dirt. One major tree still down about a mile from the top. Several areas almost completely washed out. Still quite doable.
