Here’s a useful Colorado Trail tip about shuttling.
If you’re planning a one-way Trail trip and you’re needing a shuttle to or from your vehicle, consider leaving your car at your end point, where you’ll finish. Arrange with your shuttler to meet you there and have them shuttle you to your start point. Beginning your trip this way and accomplishing your shuttle at the start, when your timing is usually known, can help a lot in making shuttle arrangements for a known day and time. Ending your CT trip, it is likely your timing will be tough to predict. Having your own vehicle waiting where you’ll end often makes things easier and proves a source of comfort.
