I ended up taking my 2000 Jeep Cherokee (old boxy kind) and it did fine, but there were a few parts where I was a little nervous I didn't quite have the clearance. Like @chasingrainbows we had to get out and scout lines on three different parts (and build up rocks in a few washed out parts). In the end, it was a bit of fun technical 4x4'ing. Not sure of clearance measurement on my Jeep, but anything less wouldn't fare well. The road gets you to the goods though.

Glad you made it. When I called the ranger station two years ago and asked if a Subaru could make it, they told me "probably not", but they were pretty helpful about why.

They didn't dissuade me from going, and it really isn't that far from the trailhead if you do have to get out and walk.
