12/4/13 Harry Gates Hut Trail reroute
Please note that the alignment of the first mile of trail to the Harry Gates Hut from the Montgomery Flats Trailhead has been changed. Hut visitors departing from the Montgomery Flats Trailhead (located approximately 26 miles up the Fryingpan Road from Basalt) will now access the trail by skiing 200 yards northwest (downvalley) from the parking area to the old corral, then heading north (uphill). The new route is marked with blue diamonds but patience and diligent route-finding skills will be useful. This new alignment is located entirely on public US Forest Service lands. Please be aware of nearby private lands and respect private property.
