Current Status: Open with some issues

Additional Details: Recent rains have caused the river levels to rise substantially. Buffalo River is approximately 3' deep. Lifted vehicles with larger tires (33" +) may find it difficult and/or dangerous to cross Buffalo River. There's another crossing that's about 30" deep 1/2 mile north of the main crossing. We recommend checking water levels first, but this is typically the alternative crossing point. Aside from water levels, the rest of the trail is running fantastic!

End up running this trail over the weekend. FS 144 (31 Mile Rd) is a rock garden between FS 453 and FS 99. Wouldn't recommend anything with low clearance or vans and there isn't a great way to bypass.
