“The standard approach to Guinn Mountain Hut.”— Tom Robson
Once on the Jenny Creek Trail, you'll head steeply uphill. Be sure to follow the blue diamonds that mark this route. Once you've crested this first hill, the trail continues west but leading downhill back into the Jenny Creek drainage. After skirting the creek for a little ways, the route gets steeper and ascends through thinning forest.
Just before reaching the hut, the route enters an open field that is normally very windy. Continue up this open area and know that the hut is generally to the left of it. Though not well marked, you'll hopefully find the hut nestled tightly in the trees.
