If you have a good clearance 4WD, you can continue up the narrow 322 (Mt. Princeton) road. Just after the lower parking area, there is a fork in the road – stay right on the main road.

Between 3.2 and 3.4 miles up the Princeton road, there are some small camping spots near 11,000′ – with some parking. The road gets worse after the camping spots and there is very limited parking above this point.)
