GR,
I wouldn't recommend Lippencott unless you're OK with a rough narrow road with steep drops to one side.

According to http://www1.ridgecrest.ca.us/~matmus/DeathV.html
"Hunter Mtn - road just plain closed - too much mud, snow, ice. Wait a bit till it dries out". The latest update says 3/19, so it might be dry and open now. If you go, it's helpful to have a GPS and Forest service map of the area. I had to put them to use last Spring at the southern end of Hidden Valley as there are numerous spur roads that can lead you a bit astray. The GPS made all the difference.

Current conditions are always important, so be sure to check.
