A HC-4WD is absolutely necessary - when the sand is full throttle!
The road is easy to drive even after a long dry spell.
Nevertheless, a shovel in the car is obligatory!
Journey time from Page: about 2.5 hours
From Page via Hwy.89 towards Kanab,
after 30mi turn left into House Rock Valley Road.
After 4 mi you cross the Buckskin Wash, which is often muddy,

After another 3 mi on the 1017 you reach an inhabited ranch

about 1/2 mi in front of the Trailhead is a gate that is sometimes closed.
Then you have to get out in the deep sand to open it.
This is the only critical spot on the whole route.
When you see that the gate is closed, it's better to hold
so as not to have to stop in the deep sand !
