Need a Ride, Estes to Bear Lake TH Wed 9/26...

Postby Dark Helmet » Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:42 am

I am planning to do Flat-Top solo that morning, but need a ride to the trail-head.


wife can come pick me up, but isn't keen on dragging 4 kids out of bed at 6am "on vacation" just to drop me off and then go back to the cabin!


anyone?

You may want to check the status of Bear Lake Road. The road has been closed for construction for some time now. A shuttle was leaving from the fairgrounds in Estes last weekend servicing all those TH's on the road. As far as I could tell the shuttle was the only way to get there last weekend

But it looks like they start at 9AM from the website. Starting from the trailhead at dawn is best, if possible. But they are reconstructing various parts of the road to Bear Lake, so cars may not be allowed anytime. http://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/bearlakeroad_reconstruction.htm.
