Got my 1991 Camry with snow tires to the TH with no issues.

Trail is easy to follow below tree line with about 8-12 inches of snow on the ground. Not many signs of use. (we broke the trail)

Ridgeline is hard to stay on summer trail but the route is pretty self explanatory.

Decending the standard route it is easy to follow carins down the ridge but we lot the trail at tree line. We eneded up scrabbling up the side of half moon pass via head lamp before we ended up finding the trail again. Once back on the "standard" trail there were obvious signs of use and it was easy to follow. It only got easier the closer we got to the car.
