Shuttle

Free Ride to/from SpringCreek Pass 2018
Lake City Trail Angel volunteers offer a free ride once daily to and from Spring Creek Pass.  It runs every day from July 1st to August 31st.

The Ride leaves the Lake City Town Park (in the north east corner by the picnic table and information kiosk) at Noon.

It turns around around at Spring Creek Pass no earlier than 12:30 (be at Spring Creek Pass by 12:30pm to ensure you do not miss it).

This is not a shuttle service. This is not a maildrop-delivery-to-the-pass service. It is a volunteer act of generosity. It is not operated by the Hostel or any other business. Sometimes there may be more Hikers than spaces available.

For a paid shuttle service try The Sportsmans Outfitters (970 944 2526).

CT OPEN!

here's the official word on trails, as of yesterday (per USFS people on Facebook): "there are no closures affecting the CT.  The CDT remains closed from Weminuche Pass to Ellwood Pass."  Advice is for NOBO CDTers to detour to Durango and get back on the Colorado Trail at Molas Pass, then reconnect with CDT in 14.4 miles.  here's a bit more from the USFS personnel on the Facebook CDT page: "I would be surprised if the CDT north of Wolf Creek is reopened this year.  These large backcountry fires are usually put out by Monsoon rains and snow..."  Having said that, the forecast is for rain in LC for the next seven days (!!!) - so perhaps the Monsoon rains will help.
Thanks for the info Chris.
