The cabin is tucked into a grassy clearing surrounded by old-growth conifer forest.
Hikers and backpackers can access the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail from trails found near the cabin. This is a non-motorized trail with spectacular views and a variety of terrain, open to mountain bikers, horseback riders, backpackers, and day hikers. The trail transitions through thick forest to above tree line and offers spectacular views both east and west of the Continental Divide. All types of wildlife, including grizzly bears, frequent the area.
The cabin is furnished with one double bed and two single beds, all with mattresses, and is able to accommodate up to four people. The kitchen is equipped with a table and chairs, wood stove, cleaning supplies, limited cooking utensils and cookware.
The cabin's close proximity to Lincoln allows visitors to experience the rich history of the area's historic mining district, including Stemple Pass.
