We drove a KIA Sorento all the way to the 11,800ft. parking area in a raining/hail storm from hell. This about 400yrds. past where the trail leaves the road for the climb up to Mt. Princeton. The GPS said 12,000ft. But anyway its the farthest you can drive a vehicle on a road up there. It is a long, slow 6.5 miles of one way, very narrow and, very few places to pass on road. So proceed carefully. Any higher clearence vehicle could make it to the top. The lower half up to the radio towers is the best section of mostly packed dirt. Above that is very rocky and tight. There is only room enough for a few vehicles to park easily, but the view from the upper parking area is UNREAL...
