    I'm heading west from Grants Pass on Monday and returning on Tuesday on a 250 KLX.

    Any of you locals have tips or warnings?

    Monday morning might still have a lot of shuttles coming back over the hill, stick to the right and prepare to just stop.

    Much less traffic, no teenagers running raft trucks at scary speeds taking the whole road. No local forest rangers patrolling the road to catch the teenagers. Lots of great views and spectacular water falls. Only busy spot is from the top down to Agness because its a short cut to Powers from Agness, Longer but nicer.
