Sellar and Diemer Lakes are near the west end of Forest Road #532. There is fishing and some dispersed camping opportunities at both of these lakes. A good place to view alpine scenery is at the eastern end of Mid Cunningham Creek Road.
This route provides a challenging side trip from the Hagerman Pass Road. It has some narrow, steep and rocky sections that will provide a challenge suitable for many four-wheel drive vehicles with adequate ground clearance.
