The road up to Queen Mine is pretty good for the most part, but there are a couple spots where a low clearance car might encounter some problems, but only clearance problems. If you have a car with decent clearance, it'll do fine. You definitely want a more rugged, higher clearance 4WD vehicle if you want to drive up to the saddle, to eliminate all the road walking. Snow could also be an issue higher on the road by then.
The road up to Trail Canyon I do remember being a lot mellower, but that was a few years ago.
