I would highly recommend this trailhead. We had no visitors over the course of 1.5 days there. The trail is littered with downed trees, but still easy to maintain the course since it is a tight forming basin. The road to the 2WD trailhead is easy to access with all vehicles. The 4WD trailhead (~2.2 miles past 2WD) is steep at times, but not much in the way of boulders. I would suspect that most sedans could make it in dry conditions. There are no REAL switchbacks, but just the grade to consider. You can get away without high clearance so long as you are careful. Again, this is all if the conditions are dry. There is a campsite in the last grove of trees near 11,900 that is a fantastic jump off point for the climbs.
