“A relatively straightforward run to the magnificent Margy's Hut.”— Frank Trotter
New York Mountain from this trailhead is a very accessible 12,550-foot peak that includes views from Eagle, Hardscrabble Mountain, and Red Table Mountain to the west, Edwards to the north, and a variety of 12,000- and 13,000-foot peaks to the east and south.
Noland Lake lies to the southwest of New York Mountain and is an attractive mountain lake surrounded by high peaks.
The three selected huts—Peter Estin, Harry Gates, and Margy's—form a bucket brigade of stopovers with views, facilities, and overnight comfort.
There are additional potential start points and other stops that can be had along the way.
Our visit in the fall added pure yellow aspen and birch tree vistas in every direction.
After following the lake and creek uphill, the trail turns a bit steep for a while until reaching the open pasture at Sawmill Park. At the end of the meadow, the trail heads right and gently uphill until rounding a corner, where the hut comes into view. Even with the large packs, it was less than a 3-hour trip.
