If anyone happened to score a day parking, midnight to midnight, or overnight pass reservation starting on on 7/3 I'd be more than happy to chip in some gas money or something to get a ride up Maroon Creek Road to the trailhead. I'll even cling to your roof rack if that's the only space you have. I'm looking to run the 4 pass loop that day and I would prefer to not start my day off with a 9 mile+ uphill bike ride in the dark.

There's still plenty of day parking for that day. Midnight to midnight also has 10/24 slots open...
I don't see any spots available except for May and late October :(
Its a bit confusing how they have it set up for the "main" season. It implies that all are shuttle spots, but if you are choosing any of options outside of "shuttle" or "downhill shuttle" they are parking permits, not shuttle reservations even if the main header says "Shuttle Season Reservations".

As of this morning there are only 3 days sold out for 12am-430pm permits. A bit less availability for midnight to midnight, but hardly any availability for the 60 hour permit. Circle below means availability.

Ok thanks! I was looking at pre shuttle season. Now I see lots of spots :-D
Some day our kids will study Clash lyrics in school.

Yeah that's not straightforward at all. Thanks!
