The road crosses a bridge and heads downhill past Lincoln Gulch campground. The road rolls up and down with some steep uphill sections that levels out on top. The road follows Lincoln Creek with an uphill/downhill pattern to Grizzly Reservoir at the 6 mile mark. To continue to the ghost town of Ruby, stay on the main road which curves to the southeast of the reservoir and past Portal Campground. The road climbs easily to the ruins of an old mining cabin at the 9 mile mark. The road forks another 1/2 mile, take the left fork. The ghost town of Ruby is a short distance before the road ends.
