The road can be easily accomplished in the summer and late Spring months by any vehicle with a little bit of ground clearance. Four-wheel-drive is not required during the dry times; however, if you are visiting during the winter or early spring, expect snow and a lot of mud. Be prepared with a an off-road rated vehicle, good tires, and some recovery equipment.

The end point is beautiful. The campground is nicely maintained during the open season. Check with the folks at the Forest Service in Detroit to find out what roads might be closed prior to going up there. An off-highway permit is not needed; however, campsites do cost.
