I don't know many roads up there
The section of Bowman Rd from Bowman Lake to Jackson Meadows is a well traveled road, nothing difficult, only a few rocky sections. Once you get passed the end of Bowman Lake you've gotten through the most difficult section and it's just a field of baby heads you could drive a mini van through.

Henness Pass from Jackson Meadows is asphalt until you cross Hwy 89, then it's a smooth rock/gravel road into Verdi. Between Jackson Meadows and Hwy 89 the old section of Henness Pass parallels the newer asphalt so there is a dirt/gravel option but it's a bit cut up and you can find yourself off route if you miss a turn.
