You could take the Creede Cutoff from the CDT north of Wolf Creek Pass. Grab
a shuttle in Creede back to the CDT/CT at Spring Creek Pass. This is the
route used when the San Juans are too full of snow for comfort.

I'm thinking that next year, spring of 2013, might be the perfect time for
me to try a serious attempt at hiking the CDT,  I"ll be 64, not getting
younger.

 

This summer I am going to be hiking the CDT between Cumbres and Wolf Creek
Pass.  And maybe even add the section between  Wolf Creek up to Spring Creek
so I would not need to repeat this section in 2013.  

 

If I get an early start in NM in the spring, is there a lower route around
the South San Juans that would  bring me out at Spring Creek pass? I'm
interested in a lot of road walking- I am looking for some real trails to
hike.  

 

Just starting to prepare a possible route, just in case.  

 

Forgive me- I guess its a bit of  CDT fever.  Often comes on about this time
of year.
