    Uber in Breckenridge

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to use Uber in Breck to get to the Segment 7 trailhead from The Bivvi early in the morning?

    Timberline Lake Trailhead Hitch

    We are hoping to hitch from Timberline Lake Trailhead to Leadville. Would we have a better chance around the south side or north side of Turquoise Lake?

    Thanks for all the responses. I am from Texas and rain is just an inconvenience that time of year. I have a pair of Frog Toggs. I will bring the jacket and pants.

    Rain Gear Question

    I am doing a section of the CT this summer. I am considering taking a rain jacket, but no rain pants. Would this be a mistake? Should I take the pants too?

    I have not stayed at either, but I did visit Breck last summer and the Fireside is closer to the center of town. I think The Bivvi is about a 12 minute walk to the main part of town.

    I have not stayed at either, but from what I have read Fireside is in the middle of everything and The Bivvi is about a 10-15 minute walk to town.

    Haha. It is probably around 7 miles to the edge of town. That was a distance to one of the bus stops.
