The road was rough and slow going. About 1.5 miles in, there is a 12"-14" rock in the center of the road that forced a sketchy turn-around. The dirt on the left side was torn out and made the rock protrude further. This may have been the rock in BigfootUSAF‘s post. I wasn‘t sure that I could skirt or straddle it safely. I might have been able to get past the rock, but I didn‘t want to take the chance of damaging or disabling my truck for the drive home. I‘m in a stock XTerra OR and I lightly hit my underside twice. Turning around was sketchy. I do not feel the road is trivial. For reference, my off-roading skills are average and I lean towards being cautious. Hope that helps! PS - I took a GoPro video that I may post on the FB page.
