IF DRIVING ON BACK ROAD FROM MERLIN
TO AGNESS. It is a very
dangerous mountain road, it takes 3 hours to drive 25
miles, and the east entrance is not clearly marked as a
dangerous road. There have been several accidents on
this road, including one nationally publicized accident
that ended in tragedy. Perhaps if the road was marked as
a particularly dangerous mountain trail, then there
would be fewer accidents.
