The FREE weekend shuttle between Nederland and the Hessie Trailhead accesses several hiking trails into the incomparable Indian Peaks Wilderness. It operates every 15 to 20 minutes Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from the Nederland Park & Ride lot at 1st and Jackson Sts., just off the Peak-to-Peak Highway (CO 72). Drive and park or take the RTD N bus from Boulder. The shuttle operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. through the weekend of Sept. 9, then to 6 p.m. for the rest of the season. The bus stop and lot are at the edge of downtown Nederland, which offers lots to do — including the magical Carousel of Happiness with $1 rides.
