Another possibility is use that as an exit option, park out cars down there again, but save some energy and hitch a ride to Peely TH and drop down to the springs and setup camp. I got family in town for Thanksgiving, but I'll be able to join ya Friday morning. If you leave earlier than that, I'll prob try the hitching a ride in option. ;)
I will likely park a mile further along the paved rd than last weekend, which is maybe 2 miles from the highway and hike north along 25 to 25A to Cornucopia trail to camp. It is about 5-6 miles by the looks of it. You may be confused about our parking location last week.
If you want to hike the West Fork, that would put eyes on a trail only one other person has hiked.
If someone is going tomorrow to Peeley TH, it would save distance, though not an incredible amount of time. Especially if the road is snowy up on the backside the last few miles.
Frankly it's 5.X miles and not much AEG, so a shuttle only is sensible to worry about for dayhikers.
