Robbs Peak Overnight Ski and Snowshoe Robbs Peak (and Hut) is a lovely day, or better, overnight ski or snowshoe trip during the winter months. The approach is fairly short, easy, and straightforward: park at the marked Robbs Hut trailhead, and follow the (snow-covered) road 3 miles to the summit of Robbs Peak. Of course, there are several alternate routes to the summit that can be taken or explored with a good map, and a few easy open slopes for making fun turns. In the summer, cars can drive up the road. Hiking and mountain biking are popular here. The hut sits next to an old fire lookout, and sleeps up to 6 people on 3 2-person bunks, with a basic mattress and a few wool blankets. A thermostat-controlled gas fireplace controls the heat. The cabin is equipped with a stove and oven and a few (very few) pots/pans/etc (bring your own though). Books, games, and of course, the hut logs make for fun inside the hut, while glorious sunsets and snow can be found outside!
