 Lots of Rocks underfoot but not under Car   

The standard route trail leaves the road at 4.6 miles (11,800 feet) from the 2WD Parking Lot. (Viz. Where the road turns to dirt). The drive up is mostly dirt with a few hairpin bends. A standard-clearance 4WD a plus. There is parking for 4 cars at this point by the side of the road. About 2 miles to the summit. On reaching the East Ridge of Princeton, stay close to the ridge crest. This route is easier to see on the descent. The rock is more stable and the route flatter on the ridge crest.

On the ascent to the East Ridge, it is easy to miss the mostly-dirt zig-zag route because an old mining trail continues East. Look for 2 huge cairns to your left and also there is a "man-made boulder wall" blocking the old mining trail at this point.
