Hut to Hut hiking offers a very unique and exciting wilderness adventure in EagleSummit and Pitkin Counties, without having to rely entirely on your own means! Most of the Huts are within a 7 mile radius from the trail head with a 700-2,800 vertical foot climb. Be sure to visit the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association Colorado to make your personal or group reservations and to create your own, customized adventure! (970) 925-5775
