Nice little dirt road to connect up shelf road and phantom canyon while staying off pavement as much as possible. Just a decent dirt road with no issues.

Dry and dusty. This is an easy dirt road with picnic and camping opportunities until WP4, then medium washouts, small ledges and short rock gardens are scattered along the trail until the end. Only ran into a few OHV on a quiet Sunday.

Gate is Closed at Waypoint #4, snow and muddy from #3-#4 so it must be worse pass the gate? But still a beautiful day and found other things to do at the lower areas and red rock. Only saw 3 other vehicles.

Trail was open and without any snow nor ice at this time of the year. Bumpy in some rocky spots but bot enough were you need to air down. Some nice scenic rock formations on this trail. Might come back with the family as there are some good picnic spots along the way.
