Dirt roads around here have been affected by the 2015 spring rains.
1. As of mid-June 2015, just beyond the Green Gate is a muddy wash, followed by more deep mud ruts. We used 4WD, high clearance. Not sure if 2WD would work right now. YMMV. Doubtless it'll dry out with time and drier weather.
2. Beyond, the road almost disappears under an ocean of waist-high grasses, with occasional deep ruts hiding underneath, again, 4WD high clearance is prudent.
3. All trace of the 300-yard side-road on the left is gone. You have to stop and get out and search to find vague traces. Seemed hardly worth bothering to drive this. it's located at a grassy area, with no sage just as the road bends around to the right; we parked here.
4. The hike follows cairns; there's no trail to follow, other than a few traces very early on. The first cairn or two are obvious, next 2-3 may be knocked over but look for rocks clustered close together in places, these may have been cairns once. Hike up and over, westward, north of the knoll with the jagged fins on top, south of the more dome-like rocky top. Drop into a large grassy drainage, follow this draw upstream, north-west, until better and more frequent cairns appear; follow these up and across a rise into narrow drainage/gully that drops west, descend this past more cairns (watch for the feisty rattler) to that climbs. For return, be careful to note where to leave this last drainage/gully.
