How is the Lameshur Bay Road?

For those who have been to Lameshur Bay how is the road holding up. As I remember it starts as gravel, then paved, then gravel, then paved again all the way down the steep hill, and finally dirt. Have they made any improvements?

Thanks in advance.

With a 4WD, it's a blast! (Of course, that's not a recommendation to drive like a fool!)

I have to agree that it was a blast in 4wd, my kids were giggling in the backseat. We're a pretty adventurous family though!

Is this ok to do in a rental jeep? Thats at the way end of the east end isnt it? like all the way "down and around" if that makes sense...

No its not east end, its past salt pond. I have done it it my rental jeep fro the past 7 years without a problem. The last section has a number of potholes but if you drive slowly it has never been a problem.

Just back from STJ yesterday. The road to Lameshur has had no improvements. You do need a 4 WD, in my opinion, otherwise you will/could cause damage to the underside of a car.

We just got back. Went a day after big rain and road was okay. This was our first time going so nothing to compare to it to but wasn't a bad drive. My husband had fun with all of the big muddle puddles and getting our rental jeep dirty. I wouldn't do it in a car, I was worried we'd get stuck but never a problem in the jeep.
