 Trailhead:  Castle Creek (Elk)

The road is still clear of any snow and ice up to the creek crossing with the foot bridge. This is just past campsite #7, so all the official campsites are still easily accessed with a somewhat high clearance 2wd (ie my 2wd Ford Escape and I got to site 7). Past the creek with the foot bridge is another issue. Compacted ice covers about 65% of the road up to the Pearl Pass turnoff. I saw a jeep with hefty chains parked up at about 11,200 and the highest I saw any vehicle tracks was 12,100. Up and down past the footbridge would be a bobsled run for most vehicles.
