Parking at Tram area before hours?

Postby SJ HIker » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:05 pm

A group of us are planning to tackle C2C this Saturday and want to hit the trail early. We also have the opportunity to park a separate car at tram parking beforehand for our ride back. Do they permit parking before hours at the tram parking or is there a gate or something that prevents before-hours parking? I do have an annual pass, but that's irrelevant to the parking hour question. Thanks!

I used to follow the guy up who opened the gate and then ride a bike over to the museum. I believe he gets there around 5:30 or 6:00 in the morning. If you're wanting to start earlier than that there are cars that are left overnight in the parking lot when people take the tram up and go backpacking so you could always leave a car up there the night before. Hope that helps.

Thanks! I forgot about the night before tip.

It looks like there will be a couple groups doing either C2C or C2C2C tomorrow starting at 4 am, so hopefully it all goes well and everyone is smart about it.
