On the adv. cycling map both of those route portions are designated as "trail", compared to "forest service gravel". Trying to get as much info as possible before I make the trip. Thanks for any info/insight or even wisdom!
I believe the section you are wondering about is this one.
My second post on day 2 and 3 cover that section of the trail. We went past the Lava Mt. turn - It looked stupid steep and rocky.
