The road has several large pot holes and a few ditch crossings to be respected. Putting your wheels in the right place is mandatory. There are stretches with solid rock sticking up. The road is often narrow enough to require cooperation when meeting other vehicles. Low clearance vehicles or low profile tires shouldn't be there. A carefully driven SUV or sturdy vehicle with better clearance should be able to make it to the mine. Don't go past the mine unless you're in a real 4WD (low range, off road tires). Actual 4WDs shouldn't have any problems but drive slow or you'll hit hard in many places. The big plus, since everyone drives slow, there is no washboard or perpetual dust cloud like the Kite Lake road. I parked at the Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area (small parking lot) which is up a steep narrow (hope you don't meet someone) 4WD hill past the mine.
