2008 Forester X Sport
Was thinking about doing this pass this weekend. Just chimming in to see if anyone has attempted it in their Forester. Mine is stock so not so sure if it would make it through.
If you re-read the article, I'm pretty sure what they mean is "its a great trail to do all by itself OR tied in with another trail (Black Bear Pass) the same day"The article start with "This trail is a good one to do alone" so I would not expect any big rock climbing etc..
Yeah, I figured. I really want to try it someday but I really doubt the Subie (at least mine) could pull it off. My check list for being prepared is good besides having a winch and prepared rig. I may just have to wait 'til I get a better vehicle to attempt it.If you are stock, I wouldn't do anything more than a fire road.
You are setting yourself up to get yourself stuck up there with some serious damage.
I do not believe people should go off road unprepared. This includes thing from appropriate recovery gear, food and water, clothing, first aid. But don't forget, the biggest part of being prepared is a reliable and capable vehicle.
I have not done that road, but that is my $0.02
