- Dec 18, 2013There's nothing wrong with taking a bus if it's there. This year exiting the trail at Tuolumne onto the road - having missed the trail signs to the backpackers camp - and starting the walk along the road, the bus came up, I hopped on, and didn't feel at all guilty about that. It saved me maybe 2 miles hike, but by that time in the late afternoon, it was very welcome.

If for whatever reason you need to make up a day, I would suggest, once you get to thousand islands, that you cut down and take the River Trail and (horrors!!!!) catch the free shuttle bus at Agnew meadows which will get you to Reds in about 20 minutes and knock off probably an entire days worth of miles.
