Run is fairly easy, but Phillip's Loop is very worn with embedded rocks and ruts. I had to pick and choose my route carefully and needed to turn on my lockers for some parts. Clearance in a Subaru was an issue often. I hope to have my Travelall running by then. Climb up to Kramer Arch area, 4wd recommend. Loose gravel and some steep pitches. Nothing too technical though. 4wd needed to climb up through arch.
Bring water, drinks, lunch, great attitude, full tank.
