The road up is paved all the way to the large, gravel parking area Which can fit up to 3 vehicles for Native Winds' guests. (Note, we do share a parking area with a neighboring cabin, so please be courteous and provide space for their guests.)

The road to the cabin is fully paved and has lots of fun twists and turns (you are climbing 1000 feet in elevation in just under a mile). Any 2-wheel drive vehicle will do fine.
