We will meet Wednesday mid morning in Silverton (the exact time will be worked out with the participants) meet the shuttle, drop the cars off at the ending trailhead, take the shuttle around to the starting point and hike in about 2.5 miles to a campsite with water.  Thursday will be 8 to 10 miles depending on conditions and camp near several possible water sources.  It may be necessary to drop down about 300 feet in elevation to get a good campsite with a water source along the La Garita Stock Driveway.  On Friday we will continue on about 10-12 miles and camp in the general area of Cataract Lake.  Leaving 10 miles on Saturday to reach Stony Pass.  This is the highest selection of the CT is hits 13,000 twice.  Most of the trail is above 12,000 feet.  If we need to walk down from Stony Pass to reach our cars it will add about 3 more miles to the last day (all down hill).

Because of the logistics in getting between the ending and starting point a shuttle will be necessary.  The cost will be shared between particpants so the cost depends on the number of particpants.  My worst case estimate for 4 particpants is $150 ea.  I hoping for 5 particpants and finding a cheaper shuttle to get the cost down.

Denise Snow a long time adventure travel leader for CMC will be the Co-Leader.
