Bus Pick-Up, Locations & Maps


*** 
IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO MEET THE BUS AT TRAIL HEADS OR FURTHER NORTH ***

Because of the nature of our small groups tailored to people's abilities, a group's route may be one-way, start/end at different locations.  The bus drops off and picks up groups at multiple places anywhere along a roadway with no parking nearby on a given day.  Pick-up locations can change mid-day due to a group's progress or other reasons outside of our control .

These are the only stops available.
