SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Visitors to Quandary Peak and McCullough Gulch will need to make a parking reservation or take a shuttle to access the area.

The reservation system and shuttle are meant to decrease public safety concerns at the trailhead — like visitors’ cars blocking emergency roadways.

Summit County began the reservation and shuttle program last July.
