From the saddle

...this is what you see. That road is amazing from this viewpoint. You drop about 300 feet and then gain 600 feet up to the top.

For real?

Seriously? I don't know if I've ever seen a road like that.

Re: For real?

My jaw dropped when I saw it. It wasn't quite as bad as it looks here when you get closer but it is still doggone steep. I wouldn't want to drive up or down that thing.

Re: For real?

We're talkin' ATVs or Polaris Rangers, right?

Re: For real?

I've driven it four or five times including a time or two at night. Driving is the only way I could get my ailing father up there when he wanted to go up there (he hasn't wanted to since! [:)] I needed to use my locking axles to do it. Lest I be condemned by hiking purists, I HAVE hiked the peak a couple of times and I've even been up there with a mountain bike. It definitely has some pucker factor in a Jeep. I've heard that driving is no longer allowed but I haven't verified that.

The only way

I would drive up that road is if my car has a top rope belay.
