As a reference for others wondering about this trailhead, we took a Subaru Outback Sport (not a full Outback but the Impreza frame) with 6.1" of clearance past the radio towers to the camping/parking spots with very little trouble. I completely agree meeting someone going the opposite direction on much of this road would require some creativity but the road is not THAT rough (completely personal opinion of course). The water bars are the toughest parts but if you have the right approach/deproach angles you should be good with anything above the 6" clearance. It was close a few times with the Outback Sport so I‘m sure a sedan can do it but there might be a bit more scraping. No real significant rocky/rough sections otherwise.
