Here's a few short clips of driving down the road as I was leaving the trailhead. All the clips are of the section between the Spruce Lake trailhead and Sled Harbor. (They were snapchats so sorry the quality isn't that good)

Last time I drove it (last summer) the road was rocky and pitted, but still doable for most cars with careful driving. I can't imagine it's changed all that much.

Just be aware that is a road which doesn't see much traffic, or maintenance. I have encountered blow down blocking that road in the past; you should having something (at least a small axe or saw) when going down some of those forestry roads.

I admittedly abuse my vehicles. They're happy to get away from me when I finally trade them in.

I remember years ago (2009?) I had a very new Forester and took it into the Pillsbury Lake TH. I got all the way in there just fine. While parking I drove into a just-too-high rock and took out my fog light and part of my bumper.

I got a kick out of your entry in the Colvin Brook lean-to log book.
