Barron Canyon Road

Anyone heard anything about its condition? I'm actually supposed to be heading in there today, wondering if I might get a nasty surprise.

Ahh... nevermind. I see the Achray campground is actually opening today. If they're opening car camping then the road must be passable.

The road is terrible, but you must now know that.  It is dry and passable but potholed to an extent  I have never experienced before.  But it gets better, the farther you go.  The first 5km are the worst.  Inside the park itself, the road is not too bad.

Yep, that's what I discovered! The moment the pavement turned to gravel was a hell of a shock, as I hit that first batch of potholes at 95 km/hour. But it's all passable even for a car (which I was in), just annoying. And once you get to the Sand Lake gate the rest is just fine.
