The dirt surface shows signs that it could turn to clayey mud during rain. It could become almost impassable in places. If it's dry, no problem; it just coats your bike frame in white dust.

Description

From the eastern edge of Mary's Lake, proceed southward on a rough 4x4 jeep road. This is Forest Road 0041. It will climb for perhaps a quarter-mile, level out, and then start to descend. When you reach an intersection about four miles from Mary's Lake, bear left; you're now traveling north (still downhill) and Joe's Valley Reservoir will be in view. You're still on Forest Road 0041. Ignore one dirt road that branches to the east and steeply downhill about halfway down the northward stretch. Toward the bottom, the road will itself veer east and become steeper.
