Worth the time to stop and see. You can quickly tour the cabin and the barn. The fireplace is amazing if you really take the time to look at it from the outside. There is a hiking trail adjacent to this stop. Didn't take time to walk but lots of people were.

It's not a huge exhibit, it's the cabin and then a barn behind it. Cellar can also be seen. You park near the road and walk down. This stop is not handicap accessible, you need to be able to walk down, stepping over roots and rocks. That said, it is a short and easy walk, not even considered a hike.... More

If you love history, take time to visit the Ogle farm and cabin. The park service has done an excellent job of providing a printed guide that gives an accurate overview of how hard the life of mountain pioneers really was. Seeing how the cold winter winds must have gone around the log home was a sobering thought. The nature... More

I always enjoy going to this cabin. It was the first one I ever saw that was preserved from long ago. The park service has had to put on a new roof. They did try to make it seem as though it was original to the rest of the house, but you can tell it's new if you get a... More

First stop on the motor trail. the old house is very interesting. we found the trail going the back way from the barn. looks like most people take the main trail and go back after seeing the watermill. the way we went was very pretty and untouched looking. little babbling brooks and streams lead you to the watermill. absolutely peaceful!!...

The buildings at this site are interesting. Even better is that this is at the beginning of the spectacular Roaring Fork Motor Trail.

On my way to the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail I first came across this farmstead that once was home to the Noah Ogle family. I started out by taking the 3/4 mile nature trail (easy difficulty) that led me to an old tub mill along LeConte Creek. I peeked inside the small mill and jumped on top of rocks... More

We went here with our 3 kids in may 2014. We enjoyed seeing the cabin and walking the trails. we saw a black bear from the car. the trails were a little over grown and sometimes hard to tell where they were. Be extra careful about poison ivy. it was everywhere on and next to the trails.
