Thanks and sorry for hijacking a bit.


According to this link, it says you can get access to Avalanche Creek Trail from Capitol Lake. On google earth it looks like there is a decent trail for a good portion of the hike going over a saddle NW of Capitol Peak. A few years ago we took my friends mini van up there, it scraped portions but we got pretty close to the trailhead. Your forester should do a lot better.
