On 4/16/04 there was snow on Ravine River Road, well-packed from snowmobile traffic, beginning just past the bridge after the gravel pit. Even the big pickups were turning back a mile or so beyond, though it was melting fast in the heat of that day. Much more of the road should be snow free as the weeks pass.
I parked my rear wheel drive slug BELOW the gravel pit and hiked six and one half miles each way to the summit. Very pleasant sunny 50 degree day at 9:50AM.
I had no difficulty in following the correct road since the main path has been improved by the owner and marked with curve signs along the main route.
