Last 1.5 miles have seen some serious water damage which made things a little more challenging. My Accord still made it, but it took some time. I was the only 2WD at the TH when I arrived and when I left, but it is possible.

2wd Cars?

Was that a big risk you took (maybe damaging the car, etc), bringing your Accord up the road, or would you say it wasn't too bad and is doable, just going slow and finding a good route? I'm planning on doing Capitol in the next couple weeks, and might only be able to bring a 2wd car. We were gonna backpack up the trail and hike the next day. Two miles up and two miles back is a lot of distance to add to an already long hike.
