Easy road no issues in most vehicles. I drove it probably a dozen times throughout the years. I have seen the road iced over and 2wd vehicles having a hard time. I would recommend 4x4 or AWD in the winter months.

Did this in combo with Old Stage Coach. Very scenic route with plenty of places to pull off and take photos/breaks. Perfect route to get your sea legs if you are new to riding big adventure motorcycles off road. Very consistent traction and lots of fun for a leisurely scenic cruise. Remember to stay right to avoid oncoming traffic on blind corners.

Drove this in combination with Old Stage. This road has seen some serious renovations. No tricky spots and it appears some sections may have even been paved. A decent amount of wash boarding, but no issues to speak of. Just remember to be cautious if doing this road. It's ease of access invites a lot of people and you can run into some reckless drivers. Watch for falling rock and some new rocks on the trail at the mountain cut outs.

I ran Gold Camp with Old Stage while in the area updating some other trails. No major updates to this one, just regular washboarding and occasional 'repairs' on the road.

Trail was easy and dry. Stock vehicles with decent tires can make it through. Saw a few sedans make it through the trail all the way to Victor.
