Shuttle buses will again run from Ashford to Longmire and Paradise, starting Friday.

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays the shuttle will run between Longmire and Paradise with stops at Cougar Rock and Narada Falls on the uphill run. Shuttles will stop at Comet Falls and Cougar Rock on the downhill run. At Longmire, visitors will board the shuttle at the historic Longmire Gas Station.

On Saturdays and Sundays, visitors can board the shuttle in Ashford at Whittaker’s Mountaineering on Highway 706 and connect with the Paradise shuttle at Longmire.

Since parking at Paradise will be limited again this summer due to

construction work on the lower parking area adjacent to the old Jackson Visitor Center, an additional shuttle will transport visitors to and from the Paradise Valley Road, where overflow parking will be directed.

The shuttle service will run through Sept. 6.
