Drive I-70 5 miles W from Vail Resorts or 55 miles E from Glenwood Springs to the Minturn exit (Exit 171). Follow Hwy 24 for approximately 22.5 miles to the well-signed Tennessee Pass. Parking is obvious on the west side of the road opposite the turnoff to Ski Cooper. If you're coming from the south (Leadville), travel 8.9 miles north from the junction of of Hwy 24 and 91 to Tennessee Pass.

IMPORTANT: Please note that there are 2 trailheads that exit the Tennessee Pass parking lot make sure your group takes the correct trail! To get to the Continental Divide Cabin, Point Breeze Cabin, as well as the 10th Mountain Division Hut from the Tennessee Pass parking lot, you will begin your hike/ski by exiting the lot in a south-westerly direction. Use the trailhead located just to your left as you entered the parking lot, NOT the trailhead located close to the bathrooms.
