Notes on Hostels

Silver City - The Carter House 101 N Cooper St (corner of Broadway n
22 beds

Cuba - Circle A Ranch Hostel 32 beds - You can call from Cuba for pickup.

Grants - Tom Bombaci (Probably on this list) owns it, it's also out of
town, like Cuba's

At Leadville CO - Club Lead  36 beds
If you go north, around Henrys Lake, where the official CDT is being
routed, and decide to enter (or exit) Yellowstone NP from West
Yellowstone -  West Yellowstone Hostel 25 beds Off trail slightly, but
easy hitch.

There are others around the nothern part of the CO Trail, but usually CDT
hikers pick up that trail at Copper Mtn, just south of Silverthorne.
