The easy route from your car to Uncle Bud's Hut.

Nick Wilder
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This route follows snow-covered roads the entire way and has a mellow grade and a short vertical, so the 6 miles go by fast and easy.

Cross the highway from where you parked, put your skins on, and follow the road for a quarter mile. Take a right, pass May Queen Campground, and contour around Turquoise Lake. The scenery is great, but the road is flat and kind of boring.

After 3 miles you'll come to an intersection. Going straight will take you to Skinner Hut, after 7 long miles. Take a right on Forest Service Road 107 and start climbing (finally!). Continue on this road, passing a few turnoffs. Keep an eye out for old mining cabins and debris as you continue climbing through the woods. Eventually you pop out in a clearing with the hut.
