The 28 mile northern approach off US-50 is along a nice washboard free 2WD dirt road (County Road 858) all the way to Owl Creek Pass. From Owl Creek Pass its a 2WD road until the 4WD split. The last ~2 miles are along a standard 4WD drive road. The road reaches what looks like an old split. Theres a large parking area to the left by a red sign post indicating this isnt a road. The road continues uphill and slightly to the right. The 4WD bumps are immediate. I wasnt the driver but the creek crossing exit on the east side looked like the toughest part. The creek bed is wide so crossing in high water might require you to float your wagon across Oregon Trail style. I believe this is where the Subies parked (38.126843, -107.559716). I imagine theres a wizard out there who will eventually levitate a Crosstrek to the TH, but for mere mortals its probably not advisable.
