And..another way to get to the PCT to Mc Donald's at Hwy 138 . If you
don't want to rent a car. Take link from LAX, or train from Bob Hope Burbank
Airport to downtown Union Station. Then take the Amtrak to San Bernardino.
Nineteen miles by taxi.
May nature be on your side, Joe.

I am looking to rejoin the PCT at either Interstate 15/Route 138 at Cajon
Pass (Mile 342) or Wrightwood (Mile 363 or 369).
Burbank to Palmdale cost of $12.50 to taxi quote to compare total cost of
If renting car from Enterprise, drive to Hesperia Enterprise location;
have Enterprise drop you off at Baldy Mesa Rd/Phelan Rd - a
gas station/convenience store that is just under 8 miles from their
Hesperia location, within their 10 mile limit!) - it is also a stop on
the VVTA #21 route; take VVTA #21 to Phelan, then #20 to Wrightwood...
If not renting a car, take free shuttle from airport to Downtown Burbank
Metrolink station; take Metrolink Antelope Valley Line to
Palmdale station; take taxi from Palmdale to Phelan; take VVTA #20 from
Phelan to Wrightwood...
If you really, really want to get to Cajon, I would still suggest going to
Wrightwood first (unless additional postings get you a ride) and
stop in at Mountain Hardware - they keep a list of local trail angels;
call TAs until you can arrange a ride down to Cajon...
...or Google "taxi Hesperia, CA" to get from the Enterprise office to
Cajon (Cajon is beyond their 10 mile limit and they refused to go
that far last year!).
Hope that helps somehow, Joe! Happy trails!!!
