Ascent Trip Report

Decided to take my turbo hatchback up the gravel road. It was pretty nice for a quarter mile and then the rocks were concerning. I continued for two miles and then parked it on a wide spot and ran the rest of the way. It was just under a mile to the top from where i parked. Speed bagged it cause I had to drive back to Dulles and catch a plane to Washington state. Not sure I would recommend a regular car on that road (it has rained recently but the mud wasn't so bad, the rocks require some clearance though).
