The hostel in Salida will also accept packages from hikers who plan to stay here. Mail: NAME, c/o Simple Lodge & Hostel, 224 1st St., Salida, CO 81201. 719-650-7381. simplelodge at gmail.com. www.simplelodge.com. Mark your package: HOld for CDT Hiker. There is also a local shuttle that may be a possible shuttle back to the trail - they shuttle to trail heads along Rte 50, but not sure if they will go all the way to Monarch Pass. I'll be finding out more about this option in the coming days.
The gear shop, Salida Mt. Sports on 1st Street not far from the hostel, is a terrific full service shop: has just about everything you might need, including canisters for Jet boil stoves, some ultra-light stuff, water purification (aqua mira, micropur tablets and iodine tablets - as well as filters.)
If your pack or tent needs repair, River Ray's Tuff River Stuff does professional repairs (West First St.).
