The road is drivable to within 1/10 of a mile from the TH. There is snow on the road from that point on.

It looks like someone had driven the rest of the way to the TH. The snow gets deep in some places, a modified 4x4 with chains would probably make it.

I hiked the trail towards harvard to around 10,000 ft. The trail was clear until the bridge, after that there is a lot of snow.
