Rental companies

Most rental companies now allow rental cars on Saddle Road. There are even a handful of them that will allow you to take them to the visitor center.

Re: Rental companies

Thanks for the info. I added your info to the page, and also made you admin if you want to make any other changes. Thanks!

It appears that all of the panoramics have been deleted and show up as X's on the page.

The visitors center map is misleading. It suggests the trailhead is directly across the road. There's a trail there, but it doesn't lead to the top. Instead, turn right out of the parking lot and head up the road. In a few hundred yards, you'll see a dirt road on your left. Following this road will quickly lead you to the real trailhead.

Never did figure out what happens to the trail at the top. It reconnected with the road near the first observatory, but we couldn't see where it went from there. We walked the road up the last half mile or so.

Re: Trailhead

Thanks! I'm making you an admin for the page. Would you mind changing the page where you think it should be changed? If you don't want to, I can make the change.

Re: Trailhead

Better yet, why not create a Trailhead page with those details? That's what its designed for...

Re: Trailhead

You only had "edit" privileges, which I upgraded to "Admin" privileges.
