I do not know this road, but you may be pushing it with your Blazer if people would have issues with Subaru Foresters. I'm not sure what year Blazer you have, but the Forester is much more capable offroad than the late model Blazers, which just had 7.5 inches of ground clearance verses 8.7 in. on Foresters.....also the Subarus have better approach angles. However, if you have one of the earlier Blazers with an actual truck frame (essentially a Pick-Up Frame).......then those things are "beasts" with 10+ inches of ground clearance.
Most model year Foresters actually have the same or less clearance than a Blazer. In any case, clearance isn't everything. The Subarus, while capable, are still unibody cars and will not handle off-road as well as an actual SUV.
