Getting There:  From Durango, take Hwy 160 west, towards Cortez. Approximately 2 miles after crossing the Animas River, take a LEFT on Hwy 141/ Wildcat Canyon. Drive south ,up canyon, for FOUR miles. Then, take a RIGHT on C.R. 125. Drive on CR 125 for ONE mile. At this point, go straight when the road bears right. Drive through the posts ( "Children Playing" sign) on a small road until you reach the end (1/10th mile) and our barn.

More Information: The shuttle will take approximately 1 hour. We will most likely take a short, (2.5 mile) downhill stroll directly into camp, so dress for a light hike (jacket, hiking shoes, water bottle, etc). Please, eat lunch before you meet us, or bring a lunch with you. Call (970) 759-8737 if you need help.

Back to your Vehicle / Pick-up:   Our trek will conclude at the western terminus of the Colorado Trail between 4 and 5 on Friday. After a 20 minute shuttle, we will have you back at Colorado Mountain Expeditions HQ and we will disband. Plan on being at your vehicle between 5 and 6 pm Friday. We suggest you make sleeping arrangements for the evening in Durango.

These Shuttle/Meeting Directions may be subject to change.  You will be notified of any changes.
