Beautiful landscape
Kristi_S, Apr 2023
Nice ride. Dillon was very pleasant and insightful. Enjoyed the trip. It’s hard for me to slow down and relax. That being said, I knew trip was around 2 hours, but would have preferred around half time and nearly missed sunset based on time up and stop time for others to stop and take photos. Timing is limited based on vehicle climbing terrain and length of road. Expected higher climb and more expansive views, but I found to be a relaxing ride (some might consider “bumpy”) with very beautiful landscape.
The most fun bumpy ride
