The first 2.5 or so miles of the road after the lower trailhead is clear and is easily driven in a stock 4x4 vehicle. After the first stream crossing, however, it is in very bad condition due to all of the runoff. I would recommend parking in the areas right after the stream crossing and hiking the remaining 3 or so miles to the upper trailhead. The last mile of the road is mostly covered in snow. As of May 22, everything past the foot bridge at the upper trailhead was completely covered in at least 3 to 4 feet of snow, so don't go without skis or snowshoes.
