We drove this road Friday August 13 in the afternoon. Compare to several years back there has been an great improvement done! Easy dirt road. There were regular cars parked at the trailhead (i.e. Toyota Corolla, Dodge vans, etc) so it should not be a problem for anyone unless you are driving a low rider (which shouldn‘t be in the mountains anyway!). There is one section near the start of the road that is very annoying because it has the grooves of the half-track equipment used to condition the road. The faster you go the more your vehicle will shake and rattle. Otherwise its a breeze until you get to the parking lot at the end. Then the road is pretty bad, but regular cars, with care, should be able to drive it.
