The road up to the mine is open to cars and SUV's. Beyond the mine, it's hard core SUV's only. In the fall the aspen viewing is phenomenal.

We were in a 4 wheel drive truck and were able to make it almost to the top; however, that last mile or so would have needed a shorter wheel base and higher clearance than we had, but still was so worth the trip! The views were breathtaking & we were at 11,280 ft elevation. It is not for the faint of heart however, because that road is narrow & no guard rails for peace of mind. I must say, sometimes, I said a little prayer! Great experience. Next time, we'll have a vehicle to make it all the way up.

This was not on our list of things to do because we didn't want to rent an off-road vehicle, but after seeing other vehicles come down the trail we decided to try it. If you're comfortable Off-Roading and have 4-wheel drive then you do not need to rent anything to get up to Yankee Boy. We made it up with no issue. It really is pretty spectacular and worth the trip.

This trail was breathtaking and very difficult for even experienced jeepers. We rented a side by side so we have no problem going on the trail. Dress for changing weather at the top!
