Trail Rating: 5 - Road surfaces are rutted, rocky, and sandy with steps not exceeding 14", with considerable slick rock surfaces. Water not exceeding 12" with some mud possible. Good vehicle approach and departure angles are helpful. Tall tires (33" plus) and traction aid devices (lockers, limited slips, A-TRAC) are recommended. Above-average driving skills are desirable.
Normally this is a moderate run with some light riverbed crossings, I would rate it a 4 under normal circumstances. With all the rain and snow we've had, it could be closer to a five. The last obstacle before we park for lunch is a steep hill with a deep approach and departure angle coming out of a water crossing. Lower vehicles or vehicles with big butts will scrape. Recommend 33-inch tires or bigger and a rugged rear bumper (ask me how I know!). The terrain changes frequently in this region, so come prepared for mud and snow too. Some folks head to Virginia City Jerky Company after this run. It is a 15 min drive from where we dump out onto Geiger Grade Rd.
