Shuttle between VVR and Red's Meadow ?

Postby The Other Tom » Sun Jun 03, 2007 5:12 pm

I would like to start my hike at Red's and exit at VVR, but I would need a shuttle back to Red's. Any public transportion options or other ideas ?

I don't intend to sound unhelpful but it may be quicker and easier to walk back to Reds Meadow.

The only way out of VVR is a very rough road with no public transport options. You would probably be able to hitch ok but you might have to get near to Fresno (60+ miles ) before public transport is available.

From there you can get to Merced where the YARTS bus runs to Yosemite. Another bus goes from Yosemite to Mammoth then the Devils Postpile shuttle will get you back to Reds. Total miles - I guess 200 and at least 2 days travelling to make the connections.

Its your hike, but it will be much easier to do a loop back to Reds Meadow or exit at an east side trailhead.

Yeah, I was afraid of that. Thanks for the info, though.
