I am considering going up to Cheam Peak and want to get an accurate condition of the road as it's unclear as to me how difficult it is. I have a Ford Edge, AWD decent (8") clearance; not as high as a 4WD pickup. If you have done Mt Cheam recently I would appreciate knowing what kind of vehicle you took up the logging road.

Hello.

4x4 is strongly recommended when going up to Mt Cheam, due to the water bars, which cause very uneven road. It is also important to have ample clearance when going up the road to ensure that your vehicle will not get stuck or damaged.

We drove up in a 1997 Honda CRV all wheel drive with no problems. We took it very slow. They sway bar touched a few times but nothing bad. Going down is harder as the CRV doesn't have low range. We were on the brakes all the way down. Make sure you have a good spare tire as there are alot of sharp rocks. Also a full tank of gas. Well worth the drive. The views are stunning. Don't forget bug spray

Thanks for the info. I've done my share of logging roads and as long as there are no deep ruts or big boulders it is probably doable. I'll have to check what hangs low and decide if a rental Yeep is a better bet.

You really need a 4x4. We have tried 3 times to get up there, also with a kia Sportage AWD with good clearance. No chance finally managed it with a f150 4x4. It's getting worse every year. Plenty of deeper creeks that cross the "road"

Thanks all for the information. I'll rent a 4*4 if I decide I want to do this ...or park the Subaru somewhere down the hill and hike up.
