Road starts out as easy rolling compacted sand until the private property signs then gets more steep and rocky the farther you go. The punishment lets off when the road turns to sand again.
Busy with ATV and 4WD traffic on the weekend.

      The steeper section also has a lot of babyheads, ball bearings and loose gravel among larger rocks. Not the best riding surface.
