I was up there two years ago. I hiked to the initial mining ruins, but not all the way to the Ashford Mine. I drove to the mouth of the canyon, then, because I didn't see any barriers, drove further into the canyon - maybe about 3-5 tenths of a mile. When I drove out, I saw someone parked at the pull-out and I wondered if I drove too far. If you drive into the canyon, you may need high clearance, but I don't think you really need 4-wheel drive, though I may have had it engaged. Looking back, I wish I would have hiked the remaining 1-1.5 miles to the mine. I later saw pictures of it on the internet and found out what I missed. Crap!
