Mt. Princeton is open for business! Had to cross three snowfields 10-30 meters wide but other than that it's smooth sailing. We also made it to the "4WD Trailhead" by the radio towers in a little four door Acura without too much difficulty. Any car with decent clearance and a gutsy driver should be able to make it.

Two trail notes - It is easy to miss the turnoff from the mining road onto the trail so look at the route photos and keep your eyes open. It is also easy to miss the beginning of the switchbacks that lead to the ridge between Unnamed Peak and Mt. Princeton. There is a prospecting trail that leads to no where so don't miss the beginning of the switchbacks.
