Follow arrows in from the Fremont Road entrance. There are a few puddles to navigate around or use momentum and plow through them. Nobody got stuck driving this route today.
Cuddyback Dry lake is a bit wet and could be challenging in two wheel drive.
Hoffman road is safest bet, but also longest and bumpiest route.
Fremont Peak road may be the best bet for this year.

Do NOT expect RUTS arrows on this route. Only go this route if familiar with the location. New attendees should go the route via Cuddyback Road. There is a rough section at bottom of hill coming up to 5 way intersection that is hard on large motorhomes pulling trailers. Trucks and or small trailers will have no problems going this route.
