Vulcan Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.621m (5,318ft) above the sea level, located in the Hunedoara county of Romania, on the Jiu valley. The pass is traversed by the 664 road, a gravel trail.
This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips. All primitive dirt roads may be rocky with areas or soft gravel or sand that makes travel unsafe for sedans or RVs.
Some road sections may require a high clearance 4WD vehicle, driven by a driver experienced in 4WD drive techniques and being familiar with backcountry conditions.
