Most of the roads are in good condition and are easily ridden on either a small or large dual sport bike. If the conditions are dry or if you've got more aggressive dual sport tires, then then the route should be OK for the large adventure bikes too. There are some switch backs with small, loose rocks in the corners. Some small ruts. There can be some slick sections if it's wet. Most of the FSR route is gravel / hard pack. There is a pullout area with a picnic table at Winnifred Falls. There is a short trail down to a view point.

Note: the route (and GPS file) do not indicate the side trip to Winnifred Falls
