We found this trail while we were out benchmarking. It's a little rough coming off 60, then turns into a nicely graded road, and then turns into a very rough road up to Madera Peak. We were hoping you could continue down FR 580 to FR 651, but not far past the peak we ran into a locked gate that blocked the road, so we had to head back the way we came.
1.5 initially, 1.0 for the graded portion, and 3.0 for the final portion (lockers really helped on the steeper portions of the trail)
Suspension: TeraFlex 2.5" Spring Lift, stock tires

Warning at the start of the final portion of the trail:
Some of the trail has loose rocks and is steep:

At a crest - the weeds were growing in the trail at this portion:

The final push to the top. The trail drops off near the middle of the picture, and picks up again heading straight up to the microwave towers:
We stopped by the towers - it was chilly and breezy:
