“Better, but more difficult to follow, approach to Polar Star Inn”— Nick Wilder
Start as per Yeoman Park to Polar Star Inn for the first half mile, but instead of turning left on Fulford Road, continue straight for another 0.7 miles. Find Newcomer Spring trail going up to the left and start climbing. After about a mile you'll cross Craig Peak Road. Go straight through it and enjoy the nice views and flatter terrain. Go one mile and gently descend to Nolan Creek. A gentle climb to the north and west will bring you to some cabin ruins and the intersection of Yeoman Park to Polar Star Inn, which you now follow to the hut.
