Nokhu HutThe Nokhu Hut (no' koo) is located in the southern end of the Colorado State Forest State Park on the Lake Agnes Road. It is named for the Nokhu Crags which tower just above it to the east. The Nokhu Hut has spectacular views of the Crags, Mt. Richthofen and Seven Utes Mountain. There is a wealth of skiing for the adventurous tele skier or backcountry snowboarder. In the summer, the easy hike to Lake Agnes makes this area very popular for families. The Lake Agnes Trail is strictly a hiking trail. Snowmobiles, horses, bikes and OHV's are not permitted. The Nokhu Hut shares a site with the Agnes Creek Cabin but is separated by a stand of trees. Although each cabin is rented individually, it's a great site for larger groups - or a chance to meet new folks!

Please check the weather and road conditions on the resources page for the most up to date information before your stay.

Pets are permitted at all Never Summer Yurts only from June-September.
