This was closed and what was open was not nice. It may be best for an exercise trail. The river was not worth the drive down. Please note that this is a November review.

From the pavement, head up to the monument... about 3 miles of gravel road that climbs to almost 8000 feet... They could use grading... not a real fun road on a motorcycle

Worth the time to turn off and make it to the caldera. The waterfall was stunning and the interpretive material left me in awe of Mother Nature’s power.

It should be getting too late for shuttles. We were there this past June and it several roads were still snow covered. I would guess that they are getting close to off season.
