1Bunkrooms are kept heated to about 50°F during the cooler months.
2A pair of light, slip-on shoes are ideal for wearing around the Hut and between the main lodge and bunkrooms. (Flip-flops are good during the summer!)
3Potable water is available at all huts for guests to refill water bottles so you will not need to bring all the water for your trip however you’ll want to bring enough water bottles to carry a sufficient amount of water. (For those going Hut-to-Hut, three quarts per person per day is a good rule of thumb, depending on the weather and your level of fitness. For those hiking only the short distances from a trailhead, 1 to 2 quarts per person should suffice, again, depending on the weather and your level of fitness.)
