I don't mind that road; I just take it slowly and carefully (and pull out at the first opportunity when there's someone who wants to go faster). For me, the spectacular views make up for a lot of the driving difficulty.
On the other hand, the Dinkey Lakes trailhead is one I will not do again. The condition of the "road" is just too horrible, and there are too many places where anyone with a normal vehicle risks major damage.
And I simply do not expect solitude the first few miles. I do a lot out of Yosemite Valley and really get a kick out of the tourists! I can leave the trail anytime to get solitude when I want it.
Well, I'm just a Misanthroupic Basterd. The sooner I can be shut of the loathsome pests called "humans", the better.
