Wet Meadows question

Can you reach the Wet Meadows Trailhead with a regular car ( civic)? Or will we have to park farther down the road?

Thanks

There is a creek x-ing directly past where you turn right to go to Wet Meadows (left would take you to Sunset reservoirs). The creek x-ing proved too difficult for me last year. I actually made it across the creek but couldn't make it past the rock slab on the other side. I had to back my car out which was nerving. Also, in the early part of the season, there are large mud puddles (stretching 60+ feet long and 1 - 1.5 feet deep). So, I wouldn't recommend it. I would park at the split and walk the extra mile each way.
