Overview

Overview

Aspen Leaf is one of three cabins at the Cold Springs Work Center that welcomes guests with its homey vibe and remote mountain setting. Mountain biking and off-road vehicle trails are easily accessed here.

The cabin was built in the 1930s for use by Forest Service employees. Vehicles can easily access the area, but a 4WD may be required in October, depending on weather conditions.

Natural Features:

Aspen Leaf Cabin sits in a field with scattered aspen and mountain shrub vegetation on the north end of the Uncompahgre National Forest. At 9,000 feet, the area offers crisp mountain air, mild days and chilly nights.

Black bears, mountain lions, marmots and deer are among the wild inhabitants. Please be aware of bear safety.

Recreation:

The North Uncompahgre boasts an extensive ATV trail system known as the Divide Forks ATV complex. Over 50 miles of trails can be explored.

Mountain bikers make use of the popular Tabaguache Trail System, and in fall, hunters frequent the area. Hiking and horseback riding are also enjoyable activities.

Facilities:

This cabin has one bedroom and a bathroom with a flush toilet and shower. Sleeping accommodations include three twin-size beds and a queen sofa sleeper. Up to six guests may stay in this cabin, but extra cots and air mattresses are recommended.

The kitchen includes a propane stove and refrigerator, plus basic cooking and eating utensils like plates, knives, forks and pots. Cleaning supplies are also provided.

Drinking water is supplied but the cabin does not have electricity. Guests should bring propane lanterns, matches, bedding, toilet paper, dish towels, warm clothing, paper towels and tools for gathering and cutting firewood. Click here for more cabin details.

Aspen Leaf Cabin is one of three cabins at the Cold Springs Work Center. One cabin may be occupied by Forest Service personnel.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearest grocery store is in Grand Junction, 44 miles from the cabin.

Anglers looking for lake fishing can head to Big Creek Reservoir, about 14 miles from the cabin.
