How Challenging:
This is a 1, but turns to a 7 after the parking area at the base of the mountain

My Take:
Nice road, that takes you to some challenging stuff. The loose rocks on the last section makes it difficult to control the bike plus if you stop it is extremely hard to get going again as the rocks are small enough that your rear wheel will just dig in. Also still snow around late summer, adds to the challenge.

The road also splits after you enter the rough section, we were unable to take that as it was covered in snow. Google map makes it look like it goes up and switches back and might continue on!!! A lighter dirt bike would be in store to check that out.

Map of the Road:


As soon as you split off to the left at a parking area you will go from a 1 to a 7:
