Info: You can drive up to about where North Star’s route description says to park. There’s a decently large pulloff maybe a tenth of a mile before a huge snowdrift.

With all the snow melted, the only thing stopping you from driving to 13,000’ are a couple of "no trespassing" signs, but the gate at 12,000’ is open and the road is in really good shape all the way to the furthest mine. Not advising it, but interesting to note. Some really cool mine ruins to check out!

Info: Stock Toyota Highlander and Subaru Forester made it up the 4WD portion of the road to about a mile below the mine parking lot - pulled off to the side to park. A few small obstacles and deeper ruts but nothing an SUV can’t handle.
