Hohnholz Access

Post By: hcron      Posted: 5/22/2015 8:01:44 AM     Points: 341    
Anyone know how the access to Hohnholz is with all this rain? We have 4 wheel drive, but would hate to make the 3.5 hour drive only to not be able to make that last mile.

Thanks in advance.

There was a recent conditions update a couple days ago saying both #2 and #3 were muddy access but possible. Conditions change FAST up there usually the road is OK to #2, but beyond there mud can get incredibly bad and deep. Use extreme caution.
I can't check it out until they open the pass here -- soon I hope.

Thanks danbob. My concern is making it past #3 into the forest to camp. I know that road is steep and if it's too muddy, may be impossible to climb.

I'm guessing access is going to be tuff.

I imagine you'll be fine to 1 and 2, but that turn past the Honholz ranch gets really bad in this kind of weather. I'm not sure I'd try to camp past the campground, that hill past the cattle guard beyond #3 turns into snot.

the ranch hand purposely floods the low spot between 2 & 3 so he can charge you $ to pull you out with his tractor. he has been doing it for years. make sure you have enough cash with you.
