There was very little snow on County Road 390 (before todays snow). The left turn at Winfield to continue towards the 4wd section was okay to just past the parking area. There is an ice flow there which I crossed. The next ice flow is when you start up the hill, I was able to cross that without any problems. Go slow on the way out. The next creek was still running with a some ice and then another ice flow which was fairly flat. The last ice flow will be the issue if you continue. It is in a very narrow part of the 4wd road a little before you get to where the valley opens up and you get out of the trees. The ice flow on the left was just wide enough for my older Pathfinder. Anything wider and there was a drop and sloped to the right. (This was not too bad going up but on the way out the road does a quick drop down to the ice. If you lose it there there isn‘t anything to stop you on the downhill side) The road was good the rest of the way to where I parked for the Virginia Group and looked good to the end when viewed from up higher.
