Wonderful historic farm site that you can walk through and explore. This was our rirst stop on the Roaring Ford Trail. There is a creek and a trail behind the buildings where we saw 3 cubs! Highly recommended.

Fun 3/4 mile loop trail behind the cabin leading to a creek. The trail is very rocky with lots of tree roots, but that keeps the kids interested. My 4 year old had fun pretending he was a ninja making his way through the rocks,...More

Perfect choice when some in your group love hiking and others really don’t. Beautiful walk with good opportunities for photos. Be sure to wear good shoes—the trail is correctly marked as easy, but doesn’t explain that some areas are very rocky. The farm has wonderful...More

This is normally a very good spot for photos, but during our May visit the main cabin itself looked like some significant damage had occurred during the Winter. In the Fall (2018) it looked fine.

Decided to drive over to the Noah "Bud" Ogle cabin to see if repairs had been done. There was still damage noticeable. The cabin fireplace stones were still in a pile in front of the cabin. We were just doing a quick trip before eating...More

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.

We happened upon Noah Bud Ogle's Cabin by chance and was delighted that we did. It is a remarkable piece of history that is worth visiting and spending time at. There is a brochure that you can pick up on your way to the cabin...More

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
