It is all paved, but The Western Divide Hwy is not open in winter and Mountain rd 50 is usually closed between Johnson-dale and near Calif. Hot Springs.

It has been a long time since I have rode that, but I do not remember any change from 190 to the Divide hwy. Seemed like all the same, except the latter stayed on a long high elevation ridge and the road got narrower. A stop sign at the T and a road sign pointing the way to Johnsondale.
