Accessed this trailhead on 9-8-2016 using a stock Jeep Rubicon in 4WD Lo and had no problems with the road. I had the TH coordinates from this site programmed into my windshield mounted portable GPS. Keeping an eye on those coordinates and looking for 7.6 miles on my odometer, I nevertheless overshot it in the dark on the way up. I went just a little past the coordinates, turned around, and saw it fairly easily on the way back. It is a lot easier to see in the dark on the way down than on the way up. A photo of my Jeep parked at the TH, facing down the road, is attached. The worst spots in the road are in the first half mile. If you get past those, you are good to go. I don't think I would try it with anything less than 9-10" clearance, solid axle and part time 4WD, but then admittedly I have a low risk tolerance.

Remember to park carefully at this TH, only room for a few vehicles, and if you park without thinking, you could accidentally take up room for two.

Correct! I actually moved it out just a little for the photo op. It's very tight in there. It is worth it, though. It is a great route.
