Went out over Lippincott from the hot spring son May 29. Still fairly rough in places, though I never needed 4WD all the way up. A few sections of larger boulders in the middle sections of the road, with high clearance and good tires a must. The roads around racetrack and teakettle are in regular shape, fairly well graded. The road through hidden valley up to hunters mountain freshly graded - we passed the grading machines on the way up hunters mountain, but completely deserted.

Please read the posts in General topics concerning the springs.

Exited Saline via Lippincott road on 3/21, no significant washouts or rain damage noted, business as usual.
Note: there is water on racetrack playa, don't be that jerk that walks out there! Already found several set of tracks from inconsiderate people this year.
thanks for sharing

Went down Lippincott president weekend on motorcycles.
Here's as much footage as I have.
Went down yesterday 3/8 was as described in prior posts one narrow spot but passible in jeeps and such some idiot was going down in a Subaru and got high centered we were on bike and two jeeps were behind us so kept on rolling since they were better equipped to help.
Dont know if they got out but if they did guarantee there will be a repair bill in their future
Thanks for the link, I have been down Lippincott Rd. several times and am aware of the generell conditions of the trail. Was just looking for current conditions - snow/ice (chains) or deeper washouts from winter storms.
best regards Werner

Might want to take a look at the photos in POST #37
http://forum.salinepreservation.org/post/show_single_post?pid=1295313872&postcount=37&forum=162656 in this thread. That will give you an idea of the one area that will be of concern. (Narrow with a washout and a wall)
Hi there, i plan to go in through Lippincott in about 2.5 weeks - are there infos on road condition (fullsize truck wifh fwc)?
best regards Werner

Cross-post from North Pass thread...
Any updates? Planning a trip just after New Year in a Jeep JK with 35” KM3’s with a winch. Might do Lippencott to Saline to Steele, or just in/out through North. Grateful for this forum; hope everyone has a nice safe holiday!

Was there this past Friday (10/25) and cardboard sign was still up. Was kinda late in the evening so decided against going up and seeing if car was still stuck.
