Stuart Forest Service Road is a pleasant drive through Crown Land and offers access to several small but lovely lakes and cool mountain views. Most of the trail is thickly lined with trees. However, the surrounding mountains are visible from several clearings in the trees. The views are amazing!

The road gets a little rocky towards the north, but the rocks are smaller than a golf ball, and towards the south, it's a gravel road. 4WD isn't needed, and high clearance is probably not necessary either.

The trail passes several lakes, including Sandberg, Stuart, and Esperson. Both Sandberg and Stuart Lakes have campgrounds, although, at Sandberg Lake, there are only a couple of campsites. These are dispersed campgrounds with a fire ring and no other facilities. 

Stuart Road is part of an extensive backroads trail system and connects with many other roads, including Whiteman Creek, South Whiteman Creek, and Bear Lake Main Roads.
