Gated off in winter. I ended up camping just before the trailhead.

Beyond easy dirt road, a Toyota Yaris could do it. The only time you may find a problem would be in rain/snow or if a tree fell across the trail. Great way to experience nature without an expensive 4x4. Unless you have a massive signal booster (which are totally worth it), you will lose cell service for 95% of it.

Great easy drive from Carson East toward White Salmon. Very peaceful and only saw a few cars on a Saturday afternoon.
