Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

Trail is in decent shape, many rough spots and bumpy areas that I would not bring a car or regular passenger vehicle on this road anymore. 4x4 isn't necessary but high clearance is very strongly recommended these days due to minor ruts and bumpy spots.

Road is maintained and I was able to drive the entire thing in my truck only using 2wd. Had some ruts, wash out spots and gets bumpy in some spots. I went after a hard night of rain but didn't see any issues with the road. I wouldn't take a passenger car, van or low clearance SUV up there though because of the rocky areas. You could leave with your exhaust dragging behind you. Several other smaller tighter forest roads connects this road over to Hale Ridge Rd. The road is rated as easy but it was certainly more fun than expected.

Fairly Well maintained trail. Followed the trail to waypoint 6 and detoured onto Billingsley Creek Trail. Several prior days of rain had sections of the steeper trail areas washed out and added some bouncy fun. No real issues and completed the whole trail in 2WD. Also, parking for the river consisted of a few pull offs, so if there are more than one or two other cars, parking can be very tight. Thick vegetation blocked some of the vies as well but still an enjoyable trail. Will return again.
