  • This off road trail is not for regular cars or SUV's. It can be very steep and slippery. You don't have to use 4-wheel drive, but I would recommend it. Also - not for people who don't like heights, as...  more »
  • It’s 4 miles, not 3 miles from the ranger station up Bill Williams trail to the summit!! The sign says 3 but that only gets you to the where there’s a turn off to a trail heading down the other side. ...  more »

  • Such an amazing drive especially with fall colors showing. The road going up varies in difficulty but a stock height suv/truck should be fine in dry conditions. You may want awd/4x4 when it's wet and especially in snowy conditions as the road is very narrow in some places and you have a cliff dropoff on one side pretty much the entire time. Once you make it to the top, there's a small parking area and you if you look hard enough there is a firelookoug tower than you can climb, although it was closed when I went. Not sure why other reviewers have made negative comments about the radio towers, it's still cool to see and if you open your eyes there's plenty of places to climb so you can see for miles and miles.
  • Although the views in some directions are truly spectacular, many directions are blocked by trees and communications towers. The very top will not be exciting if you are a nature lover.
