The High Lonesome Hut
Andrew Miller grew up in his family’s ski lodge, where ski vacations meant staying in pine paneled rooms and eating family style at long tables. As a teenager he visited European huts, similar to cabins being built in the Colorado mountains. He began a search for a site for a cabin, finding the Lonesome Hut property in 1995. For the past 14 years, the cabin has hosted 23 blind skiers from England, several Middle Park High School science classes on overnight trips, a group of at risk teenage boys from the Lost and Found School in Denver who built a neat trail named after their school. Lonesome Hut LLC is now a group effort, my partners in this enterprise lend their energy to a refuge we hope you will enjoy. The High Lonesome Hut is located east of US 40 between Fraser and Tabernash, near Meadow Creek Reservoir, about 65 miles west of Denver and 15 minutes west of Winter Park. From US Hwy 40, drive County Road 83 to CR 84 to the Trailhead Parking area (4 miles). The trail to the hut is 2.5 miles long. A detailed map is included in your reservation packet.
