Took this trail today. Even with the recent snow fall there is not much here at all. While the scenery is great, this trail has the absolute worst washboards for quite awhile. If it had more snow to pack in the washboards it would be fine but currently you got to go slow to save your shocks.

A very easy trail. A lot of people take RVs and trailers down this road. There is some wash boarding, but it is better this year than in past years.

Just went up to/on FR 130 to shake down the 4WD on a recently acquired vehicle. Main road was dry, as was the Forest Road largely. Just a few shallow mud holes. Definitely seems like there’s a lot of dispersed camping options in the area. (Given the location inside Pike National Forest, there is shooting, so might not provide the most peace and quiet, at times.)
