I have the TOPO! software and at level 5, the road in Ulida Flat that is opposite the road to the Keeler Mine loop goes up only a couple miles, while the level 3 map seems to show it going to the ridgeline.

I came down from Hunter Mountain, and went by the Quackenbush Mine. I went right at the next fork which made for a decision at the base of a steep hill. We pulled out my laptop, plugged in the GPS and found we really wanted to go straight (left) at the fork to continue to Ulida Flat. So, back a mile to the fork, and try the other way. Again, the TOPO! level 5 map matches my GPS track exactly.
