Drove to Nellie Creek TH on Sunday to hike Uncompahgre. Dry, no trees blocking but heavily rutted requiring high clearance in places. Both creek crossing are running relatively light and easily passable even on low clearance. The exit on the inbound from the first creek crossing is the roughest spot (see pic) given the pitch/incline and rocks, deep rut on sharp turn. The switchbacks thereafter require 3 point turns if not in a jeep or short wheel base. I was in a stock Jeep and had no issues. Saw several stock, long wheel base pickups camping (above creeks) and at TH. Doable, w clearance, just takes patience - 40 min by jeep.
