I am planning a trip to climb Castle Peak and wanted to know How Rough the Fourth of July Road was and if I needed a high clearence car to get in there. Thanks in advance,

It is rougher since the fire, but a car can still make it. We had a car up there 2 years ago.

I figured as much but I had to ask. This is Idaho and we do have world famous roads.

Hey Mike, I drove a Corolla to the TH last year 4th of July when I climbed Castle. You shouldn't have a problem. I'm actually going in tomorrow night to MTB on Sat before meeting Nick on Sun. Thinking about riding around Castle, but I don't know if there's any snow left. When are you planning to go?
