Start from Buckeye Gulch Trailhead and follow the well marked trail out that begins at the back of the parking lot. Follow the trail up the right (easterly) side of Buckeye Gulch as it parallels the road on your left. At approximately 10,600ft the trail crosses the road and continues up the left side of the drainage for a short distance before swinging to the left and continuing to climb the valley through timber on the south side of the creek. The trail then swings north and east to the hut. As an option, you can also climb a more direct route to the hut if you're certain of the location or are using GPS.
