Just wanted to update the road conditions. There has been alot of work done on the road and I would not hesitate to drive a standard passenger car up there. There is also a new, public bridge so the trailhead has moved to the other side of the creek. To get to the trailhead, drive past the "9" something or other ranch, take a left at the signed junction for Lightning Creek, in 2 miles the road forks and you go left and quickly cross the Taylors Fork and park at the signed trailhead, "Upper Taylor Fork Trail" I believe.
