From OR 58 (Oakridge - Bend) the trailhead is reached via fire/forest roads with the last 15 miles or so unpaved but well-maintained enough for low-clearance vehicles to be able to get there (note the presence, however, of hard washboard on 60 and 6020). Use either 429 and then NFR 60 (going counterclockwise around Crescent Lake) or NFR 6020 right off OR 58 (7.5 miles further) to reach Windigo Pass Road. From there, follow that road to the pass; only the last 4 miles or so need to be negotiated a little carefully.
