When I hiked through there 16 years ago I thought there was a parking area/camping place on the west side of the road.  


I do have time to plan this, just want to get a plan down and work towards it.


Also, there is one entire map for the Weninuche by The National Geo/TI.  Anyone use this map?

Are you sure? I parked my car there on a 2009 section hike and had no issues. Passed through on a thru-hike this year and saw plenty of cars parked there.

My phone is not letting me download the entire email but my guess is that you are asking about parking at Spring Creek.   There is no overnight parking there. I hope I answered the question you were asking.

This year I hiked the John Muir Trail. 


2016 I want to hike the CDT from Wolf Creek (Hwy 160) to Spring Creek on Hwy
149.  About 120 miles- 12/13 days.  No resupply.


I would like to park my car at Spring Creek, then Hitch back to Wolf Creek
and then follow the CDT back to my car at Spring Creek.


I can't remember South Fork.  Is that a good place to find a motel for the
night between the two points/passes?  And maybe a ride out to Wolf Creek the
next day?


This would probably be hike number 2.  First hike will probably be in the La
Garita Wilderness for 7- 8 days with 1 or 2 friends- nice loop beginning at
Eddiesville TH that will end with a summit of San Louis Peak and then out at
Eddiesville TH.  I would then drive over to Spring Creek Pass for the
Weninuche hike.


Right now this looks like a solo trip for me.


I don't think I have the maps for this section anymore.  I hiked it once
before like 16 years ago and want to do it again.


Early planning, I know, but I want to do this.


Arizona Trail Question:  Anyone hiked it?  I think I am interested in
starting on the northern end in the fall and I need some suggestions on
doing the AZT and how did you get spotted at the  start of the trail?
