Arkansas/Royal Gorge Shuttle

Hey all-

I'm having problems finding a shuttle service that will take my car from Vallie Bridge to River Station at the end of the Royal Gorge. Does anyone have a contact for someone that'll do this?

I've always had luck thumbing a ride.
That being said, have you tried talking with Clear Creek Rafting ?

Might be worth checking with Arkansas River Tours as well. They are located in Cotopaxi so it wouldn't be too far out of their way to run a shuttle to Valley Bridge. Plus they do a lot of family floats in Bighorn, as well as whitewater trips in the Gorge....

Carry a PFD while hitchhiking.
With all the local prisons, hitching can be slow.

The park across from River Station (Centennial Park?) always
has teenagers hanging out that will give you a ride for gas money.

Thanks everyone. I did try Arkansas River Tours and Clear Creek Rafting. One of them told me that there apparently there are no shuttle services in the Gorge; bummer...

Guess I'll try to hitch a ride. Thumbing with a pfd in-hand is a good idea!
