Can I hire a guide?

Several guide services offer trips to the huts under special use permits from the US Forest Service. Hiring a guide can enhance your hut experience, especially for first-timers or those seeking more adventurous routes and challenging hut-to-hut itineraries. These services can also manage logistics such as car shuttles and meals. Note that it’s illegal to pay someone to accompany you to the hut, deliver your equipment, cook your meals, etc., without a US Forest Service permit. Check the Guides section of this site for a list of permitted guide services.
