Notes from Karst: Definitely a no go when the road is wet. It is treacherous in a 4 wheel drive.
When dry it is hard packed and wide with a few patches of some minor gravel, easily doable with any type bike by anybody.

Recognized in "The Passes of Colorado, An Encylopedia of Watershed Divides" by Ed Helmuth & Gloria Helmuth.
Is not included in United States Board on Geographic Names.
