Ascent Trip ReportRoad 10 is in great shape to the junction with 208, but that last 1.5 miles to Jefferson Summit is in bad shape and looks like it got a lot of damage from recent rains. I drove it and then another 1/2 mile past Jefferson Summit in a stock Toyota Tacoma with 4WD, but I scraped bottom a number of times driving the 2 miles from the junction with 208 - thank goodness for skid plates. The road is fairly good for a short while after where I parked, but it soon deteriorates. I was parked in a nice place to camp; so that's where I started out from in the morning. I hiked about 9 miles round trip with about 3250' gain/loss. If you drive through Monitor Valley on Road 82, make sure to stop at the hot tub at Potts Ranch and soak - the water is perfect temperature. Road 82 is a graded dirt road in great shape - you can drive pretty fast down it, but be careful because the deer and elk run across the road (I wouldn't drive it at night for fear of hitting something).
