Question about Barlow Road

Is Barlow Road a trail that can be done by one vehicle without any worries? My wife and I were planning on doing the trail before the weather gets too snowy up that way but her Jeep needs work done before we would take it out anywhere.

So I was wondering if taking my WJ out there alone would be OK, or if I should wait to fix my wife's XJ?

Thanks

Ya. I figured before the snow starts up in the area I would hit some trails. I just got back from a weekend trip down 101 and then went out to Crater Lake.

Taking advantage of the sun while it lasts. LOL.

So I get out there a little later than I wanted to today because of a few things I had to do this morning and wouldn't you know it, the road is closed off 1 mile from the start because there is a failing bridge.

I wasn't able to figure out an alternative route until it was too late. Maybe I will try again on Friday.
