I was able to drive to the Missouri Gulch Trailhead in my stock 4wd 4-Runner. It's about 7.5 miles down the 390 Road. There was a good trail to treeline with a few inches of new snow on it. I stomped it down with snowshoes both up and down. The Northwest Ridge of Belford has 3-6 inches of snow on it. I left the snowshoes behind at treeline. Microspikes are useful on the descent. I also did the traverse to Oxford. It's in decent shape with segments of snow and rock. I had a long cold day. Left the car at 3 AM and got back at 5:30 PM.
