Hello all:I have a 2WD Honda CR-V crossover with stock tires. I think it barely qualifies as a high clearance vehicle. I did drive it to the end of Grapevine Hills Road. Someone warned me that I might not want to take this on the back roads such as River Road, Pine Canyon, etc.I have had off road driving experience back in the days when I owned a real 4 wheeler, but I don't want to trash my vehicle. If I have to change a flat, well I guess I can deal with that.
IMO 2WD is fine the entire length of Old Maverick including turning off to the TA campsites & going all the way to the camping cul-de-sac. Main annoyance on Old Maverick is the washboarding. Of course, any precipitation could change things dramatically...
The road to the TA campsites was in a lot worse condition than Old Maverick when we were there in November 2005, but it was probably still driveable by most passenger cars. We were in a 2WD Chevy Blazer and didn't have any problems. There were a few ruts and one narrow section where you definitely didn't want to meet any oncoming traffic, but otherwise it wasn't too bad.
