As mentioned in previous reports, the first stream crossing is definitely the crux of the road--very steep lefthand turn with large, protruding boulders. Pick your line carefully and you should be fine. With that said, I would not recommend this road for cars with less than 9.0" of clearance. Trucks with long wheelbases should be able to make it with an experienced 4x4 driver but may have more difficultly on the narrow, sharp turns. At the upper TH, there were 4Runners, Jeeps, Tacomas and Tundras (Subarus or similiar sized vehicles parked before the first stream crossing) and I made it easily in a TRD Pro 4Runner.
