The La Plata Canyon Road is covered with some great material to just past Boron Creek, and is smooth to that point. Then, the road is in great shape for a 2WD vehicle, and my civic made it to nearly the "trailhead". There are some rough spots, but nothing I couldn't negotiate. Evidence of a bulldozer is still on the road. Then, the trail road is no longer marked with a sign for Tomahawk Basin, or at least I didn't see one while hiking the canyon road. There is a USFS brown sign for RD 499, which should be the road up to the basin. I ended up driving so far, and hiking past the road end never got up to the basin, but I did hike the road to the pass. It was smoky over by Lavender, so no matter.
