Road all the way to the 4WD trailhead was manageable in a stock 4Runner SR5 (no rear locker) with AT tires. The crux of the drive was the exit from the first stream crossing - if you have the clearance to make the exit, you will probably be okay to make it to the trailhead. After the second stream crossing, there were a series of muddy switchbacks that could be a problem without adequate tires, but even light ATs will probably be fine. 4Runners, Tacomas, full size trucks, Jeeps, and Razors can easily make it with just a bit of skill. With the recent storm and resultant mud, this was a true 4WD road and only fools would attempt in a Subaru or similar crossover. Once it dries out, crossovers are probably okay with 8+ inches of ground clearance with a skilled driver.
