Was able to drive all the way to the upper trailhead in a 4runner. Both creek crossings are raging with water but if you have the clearance they are totally manageable. The only sketchy part is immediately before the second creek crossing. There is some snow on the road that looks like it wants to keep lingering. If you are going toward the trailhead, the left two tires will hit this packed/icy stretch and your two right tires will be in messy mud. Even with some momentum, this slick area will force you downhill toward the creek drop off/off the road. I slipped and had to take a few runs at it both on the way up and down the trailhead. Just be careful and you should be fine.
