I‘ve driven to the end of this road many times over the past five years, but this was the roughest I‘ve ever seen it (above the bathrooms). Not far up from the lower trailhead (at that one switchback), there‘s a "road closed" sign. I didn‘t go up any farther because I could see a Jeep stopped above me and I figured it was at the closed section. Regarding the road‘s roughness: I imagine it is due to all the heavy rain the San Juans got this spring, which probably washed away a lot of soil, leaving behind a bunch of big rocks and ruts in the road. Still, it‘s doable (up to the closure); it‘s just a bit rougher than it was before.
