Getting there: The route starts at the McKinney Creek Trailhead just south of Homewood Mountain Resort on the West shore, parking is difficult, but not impossible. Overnight parking is allowed in the surrounding residential area, but make sure your vehicle is off the road and behind the snow stakes. Follow the trail for six miles to Richardson Lake. The hut is at 7400’.
Reservations: Ludlow follows the same reservation policies as the other three Sierra Club huts
The lodging: The upstairs loft sleeps 15. The area downstairs includes a kitchen and living room with woodstove plus storage area.
The skiing: Ludlow doesn’t offer a lot in terms of downhill skiing but the surrounding area is great terrain to brush up on your Nordic skills.
