Notes from Karst:
We made it to McCord Pass coming from Trough Rd over FR-401 (Cottonwood Creek Rd). Total distance a little over 12 miles. The first 11 miles are not very difficult, just tedious, requiring a moderately capable rider. After a rain there are many water holes, but they have little mud, so no problems there. The last mile is very rocky and steep. Not recommended for big bikes, except for the very experienced and low first gear. After going up and down the rocky sections the return trip seems like a highway.
