This advanced level trail is an extension of the Jenny Creek Trail, beginning at Eldora Ski Area. Guinn Mountain rises up above timberline southeast of Yankee Doodle Lake. The Colorado Mountain Club maintains a hut near the top. Contact them for use information.
Follow the Jenny Creek Trail #808 description to mile 3.0 just beyond an inconspicuous branch creek coming down on your right. Turn right as the main trail forks to the left and follow the red flagging over the rising and falling Mountain side. You will pass an old cabin as the trail widens in the ravine. Switchback west above the ravine floor and follow the flagging into a long, east-west meadow to the Guinn Mountain Hut.
Directions from Nederland: Travel 0.6 mile south on Colorado Highway 119. Turn right (west) on County Road #130 and follow the signs to Eldora Ski Area. Bear left at the turn-off for Eldora Cross Country Ski Trails. Park in the east lot.
