Status Update
Creek crossing running ~20 inches deep. Water was up to the bottom of the door of our RZR. There are a few tight switchbacks that require careful driving for longer vehicles. The start of the road is much improved from a few years ago. Gravel was brought in that makes it a much easier start than it used to be.

Picture looking at the creek crossing from the uphill side, and the other was taken while in the creek crossing.

Part-way Parking?

Aside from the water, which will eventually decline, is there parking along the road for someone who wants to drive part-way up the road?

Camping along the way

Yes there are a few campsites along the way where there are pull offs to park, I would say 6-10 spots so on a busy weekend you might be a little limited. I have a stock Pro4X and didnt have any problem with the road. Most of the cars at the upper TH yesterday were jeeps and 4-runners.
