05/23/20 - This is an exquisite expanse of wilderness, and the couple hikes I did were well worth it. I was surprised to see a number of other vehicles and visitors on the roads. Somewhere around the state line it thinned out quite a bit heading south. The town of Jarbidge is delightful. When I was there it was only accessible from the north; I am not sure whether the roads to the south are seasonally closed or when they open. From the north the road is rough but accessible to passenger cars if you take it easy. The posted speed limit is quite low anyway.
