Seattle Times - July, 2014
"The green metal structures are equipped with bunk beds and sleeping bags for five to eight people, depending on the hut. In the summer, if you have a small group, you may share a hut with another party. During the winter when you reserve a hut it is yours for the night. For summer visitors, a rudimentary kitchen is stocked with supplies including food, water and a propane stove."

Sept/Oct 2014 - BIKE Magazine
"On a dry, clear day at the Lolo Pass hut, Mount Hood looks close enough to touch."

Outdoors NW - 2014
"When we finally rolled up to the Dog River hut, our eyes popped wide open at the million dollar view of Mt. Hood."
