2013-06-08 Able to drive across the creek from the TH pretty easily (blue). On the way out, took the longer 4wd road back to the highway (red). Very narrow, willows and evergreens scratching up both side of the Xterra. Had to drive over a small downed tree and through several deep mud holes. Dont recommend this if you care about your paint job. Yikes  1
