I remember Spring Creek Pass for hitching also. We spent over 2 hours there trying to get a hitch into Lake City. Finally paid some kids camped near there who were mapping the CDT to take us into town.

Getting out of Lake City was even worse. We spent many hours on the street trying to get a ride out of town. Finally a guy from Creede gave us a ride. He had seen us on his way into town, gone to a meeting, and picked us up on his way back home.

  On a related note...

  When Cobweb and I were hitching into town from Springs Creek Pass our first choice was to go into Lake City.  Since we didn't have a mail drop and hitching was slow we made a sign going both ways to Lake City on one side and Creede on the other.  Eventually we got a lift into Creede, which is a great little town.  

  Anyway, the lady that picked us up owned the Old Carson Inn, which was a couple miles down the dirt road to the left (hiking north) from Carson.  It looks like it may be a little pricey but here's the website...

on the Colorado Trail. The cabins were great - (bunks only but heated).
Looks like ownership has changed. But, same address and phone. Web site has
great pictures and info. Here is some of it. Update Yogi's Town Guide.
