The road is passable by nearly all 2WD vehicles. The only caveat is that the washboarding is enough to jiggle your car apart and loosen your fillings. I wanted to point out one item. The sign for the Missouri Gulch trailhead is in the trees (on the left) and runs parallel to the road (photo 1 and 2). It is also not reflective. If it‘s pitch dark, it‘s easy to miss even if you know roughly where the trailhead is. Measure exactly 7.5 miles from the start of the road. It‘s on the left about 20ft before the reflective ‘Vicksburg Museum Parking‘ sign that is on the right (photo 3).
