We also found out the hard way that this is closed. We tried from way point 14. It's closed by trail 009. The sign there said it should be open Aug 15th. Too bad. We were hoping to make out way to Strawberry but I think I heard that's closed too 🤷‍♂️

Just FYI, on the Waypoint 1 side of this trail there is a locked gate stating that the trail has been closed since 7/17/23 due to a landslide. There is not reopen date listed. The gate is at the last of the houses before you start up the road toward the canyon. We found out the hard way :)

This is one of my favorite scenic trails in the area. I would definitely consider it to be on the lower side of moderate for technical difficulty. That said, there are some trail conditions and obstacles that would be hard for a vehicle without ground clearance. This time around, there were many loose boulders on the east side of the trail, 8-10" in height that were impossible to drive around. Also, on the west side, the roads were very bumpy and rutted out from early season driving and there were probably about 4 large trees downed directly across the trail that needed to be moved or driven over. It's nothing that should deter too many people but just know that turn arounds aren't everywhere so you may need to back out of a tricky spot if you can't traverse it. The views and the camping opportunities are the real payoff though. I'm constantly surprised that there aren't more people up there whenever I drive. Highly recommend for a nice few hour off road drive

Truly amazing ride! Definitely bumpy and my lift was needed but 10 out of 10 recommend. Stunning views and nothing technically challenging enough this very new off roader couldn't easily handle.

Peak foliage made this a really awesome experience. Definitely take the time to drive this road. The trail is pretty bumpy but nothing very challenging in terms of obstacles. We aired down for comfort and I was glad we did. One thing to note: the rockslide at Waypoint 2 is no longer there. USFS must have fixed it at some point as the road went right through this area with no issue.
