Well if some of those spots don't make your stomach roll. . . not a lot of room for error near the top, that's brave in a full size. Nice trip! great video.

Not a lot of things grow up there, that looks like a fun adventure. I’ll have to go there one day. maybe take my trailer/quad up there to explore. How long from the top to the lake?

I see you passes a hunter on a quad…did stop and talk to them?...wonderin’ what they were hunting for?

The guy on the quad was a hunting guide. He had a client from Denmark on the back and they were hunting bear. We could also see a mountain goat through his spotting scope on the slopes across the valley. I'm not sure if he was hunting those also.

The full size truck was definitely a challenge on this one. If you do go use extreme caution. The road is always changing for the worse and an error could easily be the last a guy makes.

From the saddle to the lake is about 90 minutes. I'm told the fishing in the lake is stellar. Big brooks and rainbows. I'd like to strap my canoe on for the next trip.

There is a nice spot at 4K up Texas creek to camp.
It was a forest service site until they ripped it out. Just don't fall down the hole for the biffy. That would be shitty...

Drove the truck and camper in there a couple times (samurai in tow) It's rough for that rig but doable...

I did see a group of americans camping at the forest service site at the 4 K mark. Keep your food away from where you sleep in those woods haha

Do you have any pictures of the 4K camp? could I get a dually with a camper and 18' trailer in there?

I don't recall any serious obstacles that would prevent you from getting there as long as you has good clearance on the trailer. There was one dried out runoff bed that was a couple feet deep and maybe 7' wide with sloped sides. For the life of me I'm not sure if it was before or after the camp.

I don't have any pics of the campsite itself.
The dually wouldn't be a problem as mentioned it's the ground clearance on the trailer that would be the issue on the road in. There is one spot where the road makes a pretty sharp climb around the 2K? mark (south side of the river past the first bridge.
There is a spot at the very beginning of Texas creek road (across the bridge) where you can park to do a scouting trip. This is where most of the truck and trailers park. (day trippers)

I did make the turn at the 4k camp with the truck, camper and samurai in tow. You should make it with your rig. An alternative is to pull past and back down. I have brushed out the road down to the camp so you do have room to maneuver.
There is a "roundabout" down in the camp.
There is one spot where you could park truck and trailer connected. You would have to do some minor digging for level (sandy gravel)
Room for two rigs (comfortable) more if the others are tenting or are willing to work at a spot.

edit:
The road in would be considered rough for a truck and camper. Have to go slow to prevent sway. There were a few spots I used 4 low to creep along. I have been in a couple times and would go again. '04 dodge diesel with a 10 foot adventurer camper.
