Actually made the trip 1.5 times. The first night we got a late start and turned back a little past Lizard lake. The road is very rocky. I would not attempt this with passenger rated tires but I saw a few stock SUVs doing this.
I just hope I would not have to meet someone coming the other way on the shelf-road sections. There are shelf sections from what I remember. You just have to note where your pull outs are and how far back. Remember the uphill vehicle has the Right Of Way. This will change many times as you make the 6 miles out to the mill. Once there the trip back was a cinch. The photography was great and we went past it to the townsite of Crystal. There we med a kid carrying a rifle and chatted a little. Turned out his family owned several hundred acersand several of the cabins in Crystal and he also gestured to the Mountain over there. "We own that Mountain" he proclaimed, "been in the family 5 generations"
All in all a great destination. Highly recommended. If your vehicle does not have sufficient clearance or good tires there are quad rentals and jeep tours available in Marble.
