Ludlow Hut is six miles west of Lake Tahoe on the northern edge of Desolation Wilderness. It was built in 1955 by friends and family as a memorial to Bill Ludlow, who lost his life at the age of 23 while serving with the Army Corps of Engineers during the Korean War.
The hut has a main room with a wood-burning stove, tables, and a kitchen area. An upstairs sleeping loft accommodates 15. A two-story outhouse is 100' southeast of the cabin.
