Road is easily passable for AWD with a little clearance. Our Forester made it (8.7" of ground clearance), no issues whatsoever, all the way to radio towers (about 3.1 miles past paved parking lot). We could have gone all the way to the turn off just before the old mine. Road is VERY narrow in most places and probably only 6 or so parking spots from radio towers on. Not too many rocks on road, but numerous spots where the road dips sharply or has a steep bump. For info only, we did see a Mazda minivan up past the towers. Worst part is probably the exposure in some areas, if you‘re afraid of heights.
