Some people can arrange their own transportation to and from the trailheads or around trail gaps. Others may prefer to pay someone to drive their groups. When the cost is shared among the members of the group, it may be quite reasonable. Similarly, some people will prefer to make their own hotel reservations, and others may prefer to have that done by someone more experienced. Some of these outfitters will arrange fully-outfitted trips as well as shuttles. We are not personally familiar with most of these services. We present this information for your convenience; it is not a review or recommendation.
