Shuttle to passage 16 from Picketpost?

Post by smithf4e » Feb 01 2015 11:04 am

We're looking for a short shuttle ride from the Picketpost trailhead, Passage 17 to the beginning of Passage 16, this Friday afternoon (Feb. 6th) or early Sat. am. Two of us and a medium sized dog. The two shuttles listed in the AZT book are not in business anymore, apparently. Will pay.

Do you mean from Picketpost to the Kelvin/Riverside TH, the south end of Passage 16?

@smithf4e
I am free Friday morning and would be able to shuttle you to Passage 16.
I just hiked passage 17 this past Saturday. The trail is in great shape and water was flowing in the wash.
We are doing passage 18 this Saturday.

Ride Needed: Tuscon to Border/Terminus, early April

Post by Analog » Mar 17 2015 5:33 pm

Hello!

Flying from Seattle to Tucson on April 8; looking for transportation from Tucson to Sierra Vista / southern terminus.

If you know of any trail angels or alternatives to the established shuttle services, please let me know. Open to splitting shuttle costs. Departure date is flexible.

Thank you.

(Hope I posted this correctly and sorry if I didn't.)

I used Ken Morrow out of Patagonia. He will drive you from Tucson to trailhead, but may cost $180 for the carload.520-604-6939

Looking for cheaper alternatives or partners to split cost of shuttle. Thank you, though!

If you can spend a day in Tucson, you can get a Hertz rental car (in the city, not the airport). After Thursday noon, the weekend daily rate is ~40 USD. You can drop it off in Sierra Vista (no extra charge). After that, Huachuca Shuttle and Taxi in SV quoted me $35 for SV-AZT. It's not dirt cheap, but you're much more flexible and can even do some stocking along the way.

Still looking for ride from Tuscon to Sierra Vista and/or Coronado National Memorial, April 8 or 9. Also, willing to split cost of shuttle, etc.

Carpool to Utah border.

Post by Dave1 » May 31 2015 6:16 pm

Anyone from the Valley planning on doing some of the northern sections (ex: 42, 43) from south to north and ending at the state line anytime soon? If so, I'd like to catch a ride with you. I could drop you off at the trailhead of your choice and then drop your vehicle off at the end (state line). I'll then hike southbound and get picked up by my wife at a later time.
