“A long gradual climb to Margy's Hut.”— Sarah Niemeyer
Continue winding up the Johnson Creek Trail for 1.5 miles until you reach another wide road. Take a right on this road, and travel slightly downhill for 0.25 mile. You'll begin climbing gradually again for another 2 miles. After that, you'll take a left fork/switchback for a short climb to a saddle. Just to the north of the saddle, you'll reach another wide road. Head right onto this road and follow it to traverse for 0.5 mile. Turn right and follow the trail past a marked fence, which will take you straight to the hut.
