The road up to the Garden Parking Lot?

What shape is it in this winter? Well-plowed? Rutted? Trying to figure which car to bring for my winter campout, mine or my wife's...

I had no issue at all with a 2wd Honda Accord on Friday. As they say, conditions can change. Not enough snow to be rutted.

Thanks for the info BillB! Is there any public parking down in town where I could safely leave my car for a couple of nights?

Yes, there is a municipal lot near the turn off for the Garden on Route 73. Overnight parking is permitted there.

Safe? If you mean from crime, that question would not even have occurred to me.

just noticed your from Westchester hehe. Not as many trailhead robberies up in these parts. Yeah, I've used this lot twice when the Garden was full and it was fine. It's right next to a bunch of businesses so it'd be hard for any shadiness to transpire.
