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.

It was fun to explore. The nature trail was perfect for my really little kids. Grab the brochure at the beginning and take it on the nature trail. You'll have to wear a baby because the trail won't accommodate a stroller.

This cabin was one of the stops on our driving tour and it was such an interesting place to visit. We really got a feel for the history of the area and learned so much about the settlers of the area. The only downside was the graffiti on this historic building. We could not understand why anyone would do that.... More

You will not want to miss the Noah Ogle place on the Roaring Forks motor trail. This is the first cabin on the right. The old home is a beauty for pics in any season. You never know what might be in them either. ;)
