Soda Springs Rd Conditions

I'm planning a route and looking for the current condition of Soda Springs Road. I rode it maybe 12 years ago on a GS with 80/20 tires and it was no big deal, But I've seen some reports where they say large sections have turned to silt. Any feedback is much appreciated.

A little silt/dust on west end, scattered rocks/gravel here and there, one shallow creek crossing that will be dry this time of year. If you made it through before you'll be fine, typical forest road condition.

Hennes Pass road was a f'n dust bowl last time I rode through, a procession of logging trucks will grind the surface right down to the consistency of talc.

I'll second what St Stan said - It's in good shape. I made it two up on an F650GS about a month ago without any issues - there are some loose sections, but nothing that we couldn't handle.
