The rock in the middle of the eroded trail, show in the video, looks daunting. My advice is to travel on the outside of the trail, not the inside, as shown in the video. Perhaps the Toyotas are too wide for the outside but a Wrangler will make it.
Once you are near the top, past the obstacle in the above video, the trail gets extremely narrow with a sheer drop. This is not for the faint-hearted and there is no way to turn around. Also, there is a hairpin turn after this shelf road, a steep climb up loose rock, and then a terribly eroded rocky turn at the top. If you're not sure, park below the obstacle and spend 30 minutes walking the final 300 yards scouting out the trail before heading up.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to discourage anyone, but when it's your first time, head up the final portion of the trail with your eyes wide open. Beginners can tackle this trail but I'd advise always doing it with someone else who's been there before. Lockers are also recommended because of the loose stone on the final steep stretch.
