Yes... I ran the bottom half ("The Rock Garden") 2 years ago, and the whole road in its entirety last November. Have you run it or are you looking for more info on it or a recent trip report?

Not sure how deep they are right now, but yes there are a series of 4 DEEP water holes. By deep I mean about 3ft. A couple have bypasses within the right of way of the road, but I believe 2 of them you have no choice but to go through.

You can avoid that part though and just run the Rock Garden. At the top of the rock garden there's a short road to the left, take that to the T and take another left and it'll bring you right back down to the pillars at the start.

Hard bottom though? Or soft bottom? And how tough is the rock garden?

I wouldn't say either hard or soft... kind of in between. Some are rock all the way across. Some are muddy but not quicksand. Some have ledges at the entrance/exit you have to climb/descend into.

I did the rock garden on 31s with a 3" lift that was sagged down to 1". But you know when I had my white jeep I'd put that thing anywhere. Later on we went to Devil's Pass which is an even harder ledge climb only 10 minutes away. Did that one in my jeep twice.

Some pics from the Rock Garden








Pics from Cat Hole. For reference, the big Chevy truck has a D60 front /14b FF rear, + 5" lift and 35s.







Devil's Pass:
The "easy" climb on the left was all ice so there was no choice but to go up the steep ledge.
