Defense Mine Conditions

Post by tcknubs » Tue Jan 03, 2017 9:33 pm

Planning on heading to Defense Mine this March. I was wondering if anyone has payed a visit recently? Curious to know how the roads are. I'll have a stocked 4x4 Tacoma with Rear locks, I'm not looking to go crazy with pushing my PU limit....but I do want to get up there. How difficult is the road? Thank you all!

Goggle Lookout City- Defense Mine-Calipidder. Looks like a fun, interesting hike

If memory serves, there is a bypass that goes around the rock crawling stuff. Above that though, the road is difficult, but probably not ridiculous.
