I started and ended section hikes at WY-70/Battle Pass; that's as close as
you'll get to the WY/CO border; and the very small communities of
Riverside & Encampment are 10-15 mi to the E. There's a PO in Encampment, which I
didn't use due to starting/ending sections at WY-70; Riverside has a
campground that welcomes hikers and 2 restaurants . The 2 communities are 1 mi
apart. That info is in Yogi's Handbook I'm sure. You will have to hitch to and
fm Laramie, where there's a Greyhound Bus Station.
When I ended a section hike at WY-70, I got a quick ride to Riverside
in a rainstorm. The next day I was hitching to the Laramie Bus Station, for
a bus to Denver where my car was parked; I got very lucky and got a ride
all the way to the Ft Collins Bus Station from a back country, river guide
guy (saving me at least $30 in bus fare).
When I started at WY-70 the next year, I think I took a taxi to the W
side of Laramie, got 1 ride to Riverside, and the next day the CG owners in
Riverside gave me a ride to the trail. I always use preprinted hitch signs
on 8.5x11 white paper, printed in the biggest, hi quality, bold, black
letters I can fit on the page; use a laser printer or dip in Thompson's Water
Seal for moisture protection.

n August I am hiking the CDT (probably to I-70 or so) starting at the
WY-CO border. I fly in to Denver and can then take a shuttle to Steamboat
Springs. But, how do I get from there to the trail head? Is there a better
way? I looked at bus service to Wyoming, but still couldn't get to the
Any help is appreciated and thanks,
