Accessing Northern Terminus early September

Post by findbosco » Jun 16 2016 12:40 pm

Hi all,

Planning a thru-hike beginning ~September 1. Trying to determine cheapest way to access the northern trailhead. Haven't bought my ticket to fly into Arizona yet - hoping to determine which city to fly into first (including possibly St. George, Utah - waiting to hear back from Suva Shuttle on a price for shuttle out of there).

So, (1) anyone else trying to hit the northern terminus at the same time and want to carpool?, (2) any tips/advice on the topic?

FWIW, my overall plan is to have mailed my bike to Southern Utah (probably St. George), to retrieve after thru-hiking (which will involve a hitch from Southern Arizona back to Southern Utah), and a subsequent cycle to Salt Lake.

Thank you for any advice and suggestions you all might have!

Hi. When I started I flew from ANC to Page (via Phoenix) and then got a ride from Yermo 435 689-2182. He did a great job, quizzed me about my gear and plans. He also stopped for my last-minute shopping (stove fuel and water). I can only recommend him. Everything went very smoothly and reasonable in cost.

CONTACT BETTY PRICE for a ride. PO box 6135, Marble Canyon, AZ 86036 928-355-2252. I used her for the AZT and just recently to the Rainbow Bridge trailhead and she is very reliable.
