Very easy hitch to Julian. A trail angel named Rangel brought me immediately and then took me back. Resupply is limited to 2 convenient stores and is pricey. 2 foot adventures has your minimal gear needs covered. It’s a cool town with great food options and they’re very hiker friendly.
I got a hitch in 30 seconds from Scissors Crossing. Julian Beer Company was awesome. The IPA, huge slice of cheese pizza, and enormous Cesar salad were awesome! (OK, maybe 2 IPAs) Resupply is a bit expensive, as usual, in a small mountain town, but there was almost everything I needed. I was sick and found big bags of inexpensive hard candy at a gift shop, for my sore throat, which was helpful. Unexpected shops for resupply can sometimes be cheaper. Super easy to hitch back from near Post Office.
It is a beautiful town with excellent pie and beer. The lodging from a hotel perspective is excellent, but very expensive. As you are only looking to resupply for a couple of days from here, there is plenty of the standard hiker fare. There are fuel canisters for sale.
Top 3 towns I went through. I went through while the super bloom was happening and the town was so busy. Can't say about hitching, got a ride from Ghost as soon as I got to scissors. Everything went right for me here, loved it.
