2012-03-17 Road is dry to campground. There is a trail to Sunshine immediately across the road (look for a green power box about 50 feet to the west); we didn‘t hike east the mentioned quarter mile. Yikes         
2011-07-02 Road easily accessible by car. Parking dry with a few potholes. --bb--         
2010-05-01 The road is kept clear all winter and rarely will you have problems. As of late-April, CR-30 to Mill Creek was completely dry and the same goes for the Shelf Road up to Silver Creek/Grizzly Gulch. The SC/GG TH is around 5 miles beyond the Mill Creek campground via the Shelf Road. San Juan Ron         
2009-05-26 Road is clear of snow all the way to the small parking lot, but is impossible to make without the aid of a 4WD. Due to the recent rain the entire road is one huge mudhole. My party left our civics at the start of 15-GG which is where the road gets impassable by 2WD. Lyssah         
2008-05-24 Road is fine. You can make it with a car. San Juan Ron         
2006-07-10 Road to the TH is in excellent shape. Drove a truck up it, but a car might make it - a little steep in at least one place. SarahT         
2005-05-15 Road in excellent shape, easily reachable by passenger cars. Plenty of room for camping. No snow. mouser
