Easy walk into Dunsmuire on the train tracks. Good restaurants. There's a new backpacking store. They might have ideas for quick hitch back. If you stay over night there's a motel(sorry I've forgotten the name it's a little way south of town on the bus route that the owner will take you back to the trail. Taxi is also available. Also there's a parking lot on trail just before the 5. Lots of cars belonging to day hikers/fishers to ask for rides.  Marmot
