 Trailhead:  Mineral Park (Mosquito)

As of 5/24, the road is passable to within a tenth of a mile of the TH by high-clearance 4x4 vehicles. There are some snow patches to cross, but with high clearance and enough momentum going forward they are doable. We made it to a point just before the trailhead where continuous snow with no tire tracks through it blocked the remainder of the road, but you could see the trailhead from here so it didn't make any difference. About halfway up the Windy Point Road (about 1.4 miles) is where snowfields started to cross the road more frequently and if you're sketched out by that, especially with the possibility of heavy slushy snow on the trip out, this would be a good place to park.
