Clay Hills road in a Passenger car!?!

Hey there, we are doing the San Juan next month.....Can we do that road in a passenger, i.e. Lower clearance, vehicle? We need to plan our shuttle vehicles for the San Juan trip. If anyone has any fresh info, we would appreciate it. Usually it is doable, taking it slowly, but sometimes it's very washed out. Thank you!!

Haven't been down there in a while but I haven't seen it too bad for a car (depending on driver of course). As long as it isn't flooding I wouldn't worry.

I was there first week of April. Road was recently graded.

Graded or not that road is always hard on vehicles and trailers. Make sure you have plenty of gas and a spare tire for both your vehicle and trailer. Hope for little or no rain...

Depends. If it's your car... Go slow. If it's not... RALLY THAT SHIT!

The larger the river of knowledge the longer the shoreline of wonder.
