I was able to drive a Toyota Yaris all the way to the TH. Capital Creek Rd. is paved most of the way. Eventually it turns to red dirt and gets very rough from rocks, pot holes, and wash-out ruts. If you drive very slow and are careful you can maneuver around or straddle the bad spots. The road gets steepest just before the TH. and if this red dirt road is wet it will be too slippery to drive up it. CHOOSE WHISLY... The road is very narrow and there are not many spots anywhere to turn around at if you commit to this road in a car (or anything). There were other cars up there the day I went up.
