So Cerro Gordo to San Lucas Canyon was a walk in the park.  A few rough spots but pretty much a breeze.  As noted, Hunter Mountain is in great shape.  Lippincott Road was also in great condition and a breeze as well.

Thanks for the report!  Sounds like it should be no problem for our vehicles.

@OpenTrackRacer, my buddy went down from Cerro Gordo onto to white mtn talc road out through Lee Flat back in July and said it was good shape. 
I'll be leading a group up it and out through Swansea on  November 6th, after 4 days in the back country. I can give a better report after that time. -Josh

PS- Drove my double cab Tundra up it Nov 14' when it was supposed to be in pretty bad shape but only used the sliders a couple of times.

Just came back from Lippincot and the Racertrack through Hunter Mtn.  Hunter's been graded from SV Rd to the summit and down the other side.
The guy that drove on the Racetrack Playa is a real dickhead. Did a real number on it...

Has anyone been down (or up) the road from Cerro Gordo to San Lucas Canyon lately?  Curious about the condition as I understand it was in pretty bad shape at some point recently.

Thanks!

Hello DIG,

I came down Lippencott in 2012 in my E350 extended Sportsmobile 4x4. No problem, just a little tight in a few spots.

I don't know.  I've never seen you drive.

Think a E350 Ford extended 4X4 Sportsmobile can make Lippincott RD?

Thanks for the responses!  Sounds like about a full day roundtrip, with plenty of gas (and beer, of course).

Hunter Mtn, Racetrack, Ubehebe, Big Pine to Eureka Dunes
I traveled the above roads on Friday, April 15. Other than some mud holes on Hunter Mountain and lots of washboard, there were no obstacles. 1998 E350 4x4 diesel van Sportsmobile

I would say between 3 hours and eternity, depending on your fluency in German.
