Anyone have a shuttle contact around Tapoco Lodge (Joyce Kilmer/Slickrock Wilderness)? Looking for a shuttle from the lodge to Big Fat Gap. Looks to only be around 10miles from the lodge.

The shortest distance would be leaving Big Fat Gap on foot on the Hangover Lead North trail and reaching Yellowhammer Gap in quick order and then taking the new BMT reroute trail in the gap down to Tapoco Lodge---a distance of about 5 miles I guess.

Thanks for the reply. I am good on trail options to hike out. Just looking for a ride back to Big Fat Gap parking lot.

For anyone interested I was able to obtain this information from Becky (guest services) at the lodge:

If you end up in the area, do check out the lodge. They are hiker friendly! Besides a place to bunk, they also have both an open air, and very fancy restaurant.
