Overview

No parking on FS Road 731! Only park in the designated 10th Mountain area.
Features: -none-

Description

Look for signs to the 10th Mountain Parking Area as you make your way into Ski Cooper.

At the NE corner of the lot, follow the nordic trail system NE that goes into Piney Gulch. About 0.75 miles in, you leave the nordic system and ski up the left fork into a clearing around 10,650 feet.

Go NW and climb through the clearing to the north end of the saddle north of pt. 10,963. From here you can see Taylor Hill (which has good skiing). Climb east briefly, then go north and traverse 0.5 miles along the western face of Taylor Hill. You'll eventually come to another clearing around 11,150 ft. east of the hut. Go down from here and west about 1000 feet to reach the cabin.

Take off your gear and relax or go explore the area!
