Re: Getting around CO without a car? on 07/26/2009 09:35:37 MDT Black Hills Stage runs from Denver International Airport to Gunnison/Crested Butte, stopping in Salida, among other places. It would get you close to the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail.
There is great hiking out of Crested Butte, and there are locals willing, for a fee, to get you to trailheads.
Google "Vail Shuttle" and "Copper Shuttle" for a variety of I-70 services. They are expensive though ($200-$400).
Once out of the City, hitching is pretty easy, especially if you have a sign and look halfway non-threatening.
If you can figure out local buses from DIA you could do the CT from Denver to Salida. Or from the I-70 corridor, the CDT to Salida.
Note particularly the "look halfway non-threatening" advice if you are serious about "on the cheap."
