Its also one of the few places that doesn't have a seasonal gate closure. I'm not sure I'd take a rental vehicle up there is there is snow though. The area behind Central City is the best bet - good snow and lower damage risk, also easier to get a tow truck

I think you go past the turnoff for Lefthand/Carnage and it's a turnoff that you'll miss if you're not looking close enough on the right hand side of the road. It gets pretty steep with whoops right around the first corner so you'll know pretty quick if you're on the right trail.

My truck's still broke...
