I've been at the atv parking lot just before the LPL trailhead. Pretty big hill to the trailhead and I didn't think the Subaru would climb the out. But it can be done.
The east side parking lot is where I was.
Couldn't see any road to the southern lot.
thanks. It sounds like this is probably the lot I need to park at as we do not have two four-wheel-drive vehiclesPan Loop is absolutely reachable from Rock Springs. It's a great ride, IMO, but yeah it's not an easy day on the bike.
The parking lot at Table Mesa is reachable by car. I've driven to to it in a Ford Escape.
From there it's 2 miles of pretty easy trail to the southern end of Pan Loop.
Edit: the lot I'm referring to here is the one between Windmill Valley segment (south) and Table Mesa segment (north). Forwhatever reason, TF doesn't indicate that portion of Table Mesa rd on the map, but if you switch to satellite mode, it's clearly visible, and is passable by car.
I've never tried to park at the lot indicated along the east side of the Pan Loop.
