When planning a trip using our services please keep in mind that we prefer to transport you to your starting point rather than pick you up your ending point. It is harder to coordinate an exact time and place to meet after a multi-day trip. Please consider us a resource and feel free to reach out anytime with questions. Our reservation service is available live 24/7. For trail drops accessed by 4-wheel drive roads call Dave directly 970-769-3161 or email to buckhornlimo@yahoo.com.

Vehicle Storage for Hikers

Buck Horn offers vehicle storage for backpackers. We offer vehicle storage for CT hikers that are also using our shuttle services.  Our parking area is located 2.3 miles from the CT Trailhead in Durango and hikers can walk to their car when they get off of the trail.  Our rate includes outdoor parking for up to 6 weeks.

Storage up to 6 weeks and a ride* for up to 3 passengers – $149.00 (Long term storage is full for the 2021 CT season)

Short-term parking up to 7 days is also available for hikers using our shuttle service. Molas Pass, Bolam Pass, Hotel Draw, and Kennebec Pass are common starting points, but we can take you anywhere that you want to go. We do not offer vehicle storage for hikers unless combined with our shuttle service.

Storage up to 7 days – $49.00 plus shuttle charge to your trailhead (Short term storage is still available for 2021)

We can assist you with vehicle shuttling if you want to stage your car at any trailhead in the San Juan National Forest.

  • Restrictions may apply
  • Space is limited. Once your vehicle is dropped off charges are non-refundable regardless of the actual duration of storage.
