This a cool spot that photographers and others will love. This cabin is an excellent subject for photographers. Also in the spring, there are wildflowers on the nearby nature trail. This may be one of the most photographed stops in the park.

The cabin is near the beginning of the Roaring Forks Motor Nature Trail. The cabin and surrounding grounds offer an interesting insight into how life might have been for early inhabitants of the area.

We visited this cabin but there is nothing special about it. We started to walk the nature trail but found it a bit boring so we returned to car and continue driving on Roaring Fork

Today we hiked the Noah Bud Ogle Nature Trail and it was very pretty. The trail was very rocky so I recommend closed toed shoes. There is a lot to visit on the trail and pretty views. We would go back again!

We walked the nature trail behind the visitor center after the cataract falls. About a mile to also visit the cabin. It was so rainy the day we went.

I would say about 30 minutes unless you see the momma bear & her cubs because they are fun and awesome to watch. I won't do any trails when I start having mobility issues due to the tree roots and rocks that are always there. More
