As the previous submission states, this TH is accessable by car. The road turns to dirt washboard pretty much as you pass through and leave the town of Crestone. Leave the windows up as this last 3 miles or so can get dusty when it's dry. After a mile and a quarter they'll be a (new) sign on the right stating the 4wd requirements of the road beyond. As stated, it is passable for a car. It does become rougher however with two spots where the dirt/sand becomes thick. STAY on the main road. There are many side trails and pull-outs. This could get confusing. When in doubt, look for recent activity or heavier use. A short section just before the parking lot for the TH might pose a problem for some cars. It's not dramatic just a bit steeper then what you'll see interplaced with rock. There's a small parking area here you can stop at if so choose. Years ago, I took a Ford Probe up to this point with no problem.
