If coming from the north (Georgetown) and without a compass, the east side of the road is on the left. However, there is a trail leading up to the parking lot on the west side of the road, so you could park on either side. The trail takes off from south end of the east side parking lot near the bathrooms, but there is no sign until you get over the little hill and see the Mt. Bierstadt Trail sign.

When coming from the north, east is ALWAYS on the left.

Great point! So long as the road you travel on maintains straight north-south which the Guanella Pass Rd does not. In anycase, I should have clarified - if anyone is using Gerry's 3rd edition, I found the TH description to be confusing for my tired mind when I arrived in the dark:

”There are two new parking lots near the summit of the pass, one on the east side of the road just north of the pass and one on the west side just west of the pass.”

I just was trying to clarify for someone who might be coming in at night and was unsure if they were on the north or west side.
