We are proud to have been rated one of safest, most spectacular, and most

remote hut systems in The Colorado Hut to Hut Guide by Brian Litz.

Hinsdale Haute Route is Colorado's highest hut system, located in the

San Juan Mountains, along the Continental Divide high above the friendly

little town of Lake City.

Hinsdale Haute Route opened its first yurt in the winter of 1991-92, and

since that time we have added three more yurts to the system.  Hinsdale

Haute Route is a Colorado non-profit organization, operated and maintained by volunteers.  We operate with the help of the Colorado Trail Foundation.

The Hinsdale Haute Route offers three yurts located high atop the

Continental Divide,. The system is generally safe from any major avalanches. Most of the hut system is at timberline, and offers vistas of the Weminuche Wilderness to the southwest, five 14,000' peaks to west and northwest, as well as views of the La Garita Mountains to the east.
