A hike/bike at the Tenth Mountain Hut Division – Uncle Bud’s Hut is planned for July 17-21.  Uncle Bud's Hut is located just a few miles east of the Continental Divide at 11,380' in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado, nearest town is the city of Leadville. This trip is limited to 12 participants.  No dogs are allowed at or near the huts.

This is a comfortable hut with amazing scenery, hiking, and mountain biking near the hut.  Sleeping arrangements include two rooms with several basic beds and a communal sleeping area.  Bring a sleeping bag and pillow.  Hut amenities include include a wood burning stove, outdoor toilets, solar powered lights, propane cooktops, all cooking utensils, pots, and dishes, paper towels and cleaning supplies.   

The deposit is $130.00 per person.  Please e-mail me to assure a spot and send your deposit to me at 1525 Los Pueblos, Los Alamos, NM 87544.

We’ll plan on staying in a hotel on the night of July 17th, or camp out if you prefer.  We will drive to the hut for three nights on the 18th, and drive home the last day.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, 4-wheel drive vehicles should be able to drive to within ¼ mile of the hut.  Carts are available to haul gear from vehicles to the hut.

Hopefully COVID will be substantially behind us for this trip, however, all participants should be fully vaccinated.

Details to follow for participants.
