We took my 2005 AWD Subaru Forester up to the radio towers. We actually drove up in the dark, and so I couldn‘t see exactly what I was getting myself into (both a good and a bad thing, I think). We only stopped at the radio towers because my car was emitting a rather strange smell after about 2.5 hours of straight driving from Aspen and we thought it would be best to stop where we knew we could park without a problem. There were a couple of times when I wished I had a little bit more clearance just to be certain I wasn‘t damaging anything, but overall I felt ok about driving the road. Just go slowly, and around some of the bigger potholes it‘s easier if you actually drive up on the side of the road rather than dipping into the potholes. It took us about 25 minutes to go up, and about 30 minutes to come down.
