Heading to Vallejo Gantner and Mt Howitt later this week for an overnight walk.

Will we have any issues getting our Subaru Forrester into Mt Howitt carpark from Licola (via Tamboritha Rd, Howitt Rd)?

I can’t Imagine you would have any trouble in a Forester. It was being graded when I last drove it in May last year, but even the ungraded sections where fine. A few potholes etc in normal places, just go a bit slower if unsure

Would the recent rain have created any mud or flooding issues?

Your Subaru AWD Forester would have been fine. I was up there just after Xmas. The Howitt road has turned to shite IMHO. 2 WD should avoid it esp. if it rains !!!
Take a chainsaw just in case and jumper leads . I always have those in my vehicle when driving on remote dirt roads.
