I made it to just over 10,000 in a stock Jeep 4 door Wrangler Sahara. Road was dry all the way up. At 10,000 the road bends and turns decently nasty and steep but there is a pull off to safely park. That put us about 2.75 miles from the lake. The steam crossing was low and easy. Is driving that tough 4x4 road and hiking up to the lake to camp worth it? Yes. Yes it is.

When did you have to engage your 4WD? I've had to remove my front drive shaft to have some work done on an axle, but I still have good clearance on my Cherokee. Just curious how far I could get.

Used 4 high starting about 2 miles in and kept it for most of the trip going into 4 low maybe 3 times. As stated in an earlier report if you can get up to 8800, which appears to be a common area to park and start walking, there is a bit of a rough area after that and then the road mellows out. After 8800 there are several small areas to park. The only vehicles we saw beyond 10k were atv€„˘s and super modified trucks. The road is a sea of rocks but I did ok with the factory tires that came with the Jeep. A Cherokee also made it up to 10k.

Thank you! I appreciate the info. Can't wait to get my Jeep back to full capacity!
