shuttle ride from South to North lake September 10

Postby arjanH » Wed Jul 31, 2013 8:44 am

Hi All,

I am new to the forum and trying my luck with a question more people have.

On September 10, we will start our backpack hike from North Lake to South Lake. Plan is to drop the car at South Lake in the morning and to make our way from there to the start of the trail at North Lake (for which we already reserved a permit). Is there any one around looking for a shuttle too on that day so we can make arrangements?

Look forward to hear from you!

Arjan

I once arranged my own South to North Lake ride by leaving a bike locked up at South Lake and then fetching my car and passengers following a pretty quick ride. I've used this same bike trick to arrange many connections for loop hikes from one trailhead to another

Hi Elliott,

There are only two in the group. We expect to be at south lake around 9:30. Let me know your plans so we might be able to make arrangements.

Best,

Arjan

Planning this same trip this summer leaving North Lake 7/26 and exiting South Lake 8/3. What are my chances of hitching a ride back to the trailhead at North Lake if I leave my car at South Lake first?

Not bad, especially if you offer some gas money. :)

My friend and I hitched this 2 years ago in August 2012.

We just hung out for an hour in the SL parking lot asking around. A kind gentleman who wasn't even going to NL drove us there! (He was staying at Parcher's)

After we finished the loop, I was able to pay it forward and drive a couple over to NL.

I'd guess your chances of hitching are very good, especially if you have some time to wait.

I have another question on this topic....

I have an upcoming trip starting at north lake and I was planning on finishing at south lake. My plan was to drop off the car on saturday morning at south lake, then hitch a ride back to north lake and start hiking. However, it occurred to me that there might be people driving towards the TH at south lake in the morning, but probably not too many people leaving until later in the day when people start coming off the trail. Any thoughts on how likely it is for me to get a ride from south lake to north lake at, say, 9am on a saturday morning? Perhaps I should just hitch a ride back to north lake at the end of my trip instead?

Thanks.

I recently (July 2014) did a North to South Lake loop and so needed a car shuttle. I arranged it with Rainbow Pack Outfitters at South Lake. http://rainbow.zb-net.com/, 760-873-8877, Rainbowpackers@aol.com. Spoke to Ruby. Very efficient. When we arrived a week later everything was as arranged. They charge $25 per person one way.
