Trail Shuttle SCHEDULE

Shuttle buses operate between the Pearson and Roland trailheads. Public shuttles do not operate between Lookout Pass Ski Area and the Hiawatha. 

Most visitors start their ride at the East Portal trailhead which is the top elevation trailhead. From there, you will immediately bike through the 1.66 mile long St. Paul Pass Tunnel (also known as the Taft Tunnel) and exit at the West Portal.  Roland trailhead is a short distance (1/4 mile) below the West Portal. 

The distance from the East Portal trailhead to the bottom elevation trailhead, Pearson, is 15 miles. Slight downhill all the way. Shuttle buses transport you and your bike from Pearson back to the Roland trailhead. From Roland, you pedal back through the St. Paul Pass Tunnel to reach your vehicle at the East Portal parking area.

Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Departure times are listed below. On weekends and holidays, we launch our shuttle buses as soon as they fill up to minimize wait time:-)
