    Hi,

    I went to Boundary Peak 12 years ago via Trail Canyon Road. I’d like to try Queens Canyon so could you give me a description of how good or bad the road is? I will be renting some kind of SUV (like a Bronco) and I do not what to damage the vehicle.

    Last time I was in a cargo van and it was a tight squeeze on Trail Canyon Road.

    I’d appreciate any advise on road access to Boundary.

    Thanks,

    Marty

      Marty:

      Any stock SUV with moderate clearance will get you to the saddle below Kennedy Point. I made it up in a Hyundai Santa Fe, which does not have all that high of clearance without any problems. There are a couple of switchbacks that are tight, so I wouldn’t take something like a wide wheel base pickup up there. I recommend the ridge route. It’s very easy hiking across a gentle ridge with a little elevation loss to Trail Canyon saddle. From there, it’s a steep grunt up loose scree, but not bad.
