As the previous member noted, you can drive a Toyota Yaris all the way to the restrooms at the TH at 11,700. I have a Jeep Patriot and was hoping to get all the way to the upper TH. However, there is a set of nasty rocks, just beyond the restrooms after you cross the creek, that are spaced just close enough to make for a very difficult pass. You‘ll need 9-10" of clearance at a minimum to get over these. Also, it requires some careful driving due to the awkward spacing and angle that you take them at. If someone could please dig up the rock on the right we‘ll be all good! That one feature is the most difficult so if you can get over that you should have smooth sailing to the upper TH at 12,450‘.
