    Gooseberry/Wire Mesa access road conditions

    I'm wondering if the dirt road from Rockville going south to Wire Mesa is in good shape, given all the wet weather this year, or if access to Wire/Gooseberry is better from the south on Hwy 59 going north.

    Yeah, sounds right. I saw something from before the winter weather about the roads having been plowed to level them out.
    Guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    Just checked "Southern Utah Mountain Bike Trail Reports" FB page. Looks good out there.

    Have fun. We're headed out there the last weekend of the month ourselves.

    Any thing better than an Outback and you're good to go both ways.

    From the North, it's quite steep and from the south the road is rutted out from all the mud in weeks past. All dry now.

    A normal sedan can probably navigate both with a good driver and going really slowly. Outback or better and you're easily in the clear.

    Have fun!

    Cool. I'm in an Outback, which does have good clearance.
