Ascent Trip Report

Drive up with great views.

Nothing has changed since the last report on cohp by Ken Russell in 2008.

FS 12 - pretty smooth driving. At least 35 mph for most of it.

1250 & 38 are washboarded in places. The worst offender is definitely 1250, which is annoyingly washboarded for a stretch or two.

200 hasn't been improved. It's rocky, but very easy - I never used 4WD. High clearance still a plus, but I imagine most Subaru drivers would be totally fine.

I only saw one other car for the 60 miles of driving once off Hwy 26.
