OK, so the wagon is out. But the X1 at least does have a suspension somewhat adapted to moderately rough terrain, right? I just want to be able to get to the trailheads without worrying about every pothole and rut. I've owned an SUV for 15 years, and although I can get practically anywhere, I hate it for normal driving. For all the backcountry travel I do, 90+% of my driving is still going to be on pavement.
The X1 should be plenty fine. I've had our Highlander on some pretty rough roads, and the X1 should be as capable. You'll be fine on anything like Pyramid Pass (the "new" Naches Pass), Stampede Pass, Corral Pass, Cascade Pass trailhead, most stuff around Lake Wenatchee, etc., etc.
