Shawn, thanks for the input. I drove the first mile of this road when I was in the area the week before Memorial Day-the road was very rough, much rougher than the Skyline Road we drove instead (which skirts south of Bear Mountain an Snow Summit ski resorts). No major road washouts or big berms, but lots of very pointy rocks, which was worrisome for me since I did not have AT tires (just the stock AS tires), so I bailed. The rocks (probably viewed as large gravel to a true OHV enthusiast!) may have been an effort to regrade the road since it looked fairly recent, but in any event it was too much for my Subie and me.
