The road to the summit is totally unpaved, with some concrete parts on the way up. It can be closed anytime due to snow. 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.

Located on the slopes of Soğanlı Mountains, the road is 20.6 km (12.80 miles) long, running south-north from Şekersu to Demirli.
