We drove in our rear-wheel drive merc and found the road okay. Encountering other vehicles was not a problem; there was room for one vehicle or the other to pull over. Stopping at the first trailhead enabled us to walk to the waterfall and marvel at the effects of a flash flood (we had been told of while in the Panamint Springs restaurant) that swept through the area about a year ago. Note to self: this is not the place to be when it has rained heavily upstream! It was peaceful and beautiful. The terrain was gentle, even for my battered knee.
