Ascent Trip Report

Road 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).
