Report: I like this road! It can be muddy when the snow is melting, but the wildflowers are lovely in spring, there are some (windy!) camps on the South Park side and a good hike up Badger Mountain from the top. There are no views from the top of the pass due to trees. Be respectful of the private property on the east side. Bushducks
