Status Update
I parked at the lower trailhead and walked to the upper trailhead. Henson Creek Road to the lower trailhead was open, clear, well travelled and appeared to be getting plowed. Not sure how long this will last, so keep an eye on weather reports and call the Hinsdale County road department or the county sheriff before you go. From 9200 ft to 11,200 ft a snowmobile would quite likely be the best motorized option, although the lower part of the road was melting out pretty fast when I walked down today (10/31). The stream crossings between 9200 ft and 11200 ft were all exposed and running. Walking with microspikes from 9200 ft to the summit was straightforward.
