HI Everyone! I do not have a 4v4 and we are planning on doing this Labor Day Weekend! Where is the best place to park near courtright if we can't park at the trail head parking lot. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

The road is open now to the trailhead. You should be fine on Labor Day weekend, if you get a permit early enough.

Will a Mazda three make it to the cliff lake trail head? Is this the same road that is "terrible"?

No, the road to the Cliff th is fine. The Rock Creek route is closed. The Tamarack ridge approach is unpaved and rough. Courtright is paved all the way through.
