Our Hut Systems Map of North and South America focuses on hut systems in North and South America.  By hut systems, we mean: huts (cabins, yurts and lodges) that are intentionally connected by trails and designed to be visited (by walking, skiing, or biking) in a sequence over a period of days.  We are not trying to map individual huts and shelters, climbers huts, and other stand-alone, unconnected facilities.

In addition please send us information about existing hut maps and lists beyond North and South American that others have compiled.  We want to learn about these and may make map markers for some as well.

Help us build our map of hut systems and our knowledge of what others are doing:

GPS coordinates for location, using only numbers and a decimal, not degrees and minutes. Latitude first (insert a comma), then Longitude*
Provide an address. If this is for a hut system, provide the address for the headquarters of the system, not each hut:*
Check the box that corresponds to the nature of the hut or hut system you are recommending: *
Website for the hut or hut system*
