OverviewFourmile Cabin is open year-round and offers guests a rustic mountain retreat surrounded by majestic scenery. The cabin offers an electric cooking stove, refrigerator and lights. Guests will need to bring most of their own gear and supplies to ensure a comfortable stay.
The cabin is accessible by vehicle during warmer months, along a gravel county road. Late-season ice may require guests to snowshoe, hike or snowmobile up to 3.5 miles to the cabin. Guests arriving in winter should be prepared to snowmobile, ski or snowshoe up to 11 miles along the access road to the cabin. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety.
The cabin sits at an elevation of 6,186 feet on the Boulder River, near Fourmile Creek. The Boulder River carves out a canyon between the peaks of The Needles, Carbonate Mountain and Hawley Mountain in the Absaroka Range. The cabin is nestled in the canyon in an open, grassy area surrounded by mixed forest.
Equestian and hiking trails are accessible from the cabin and head west into the Absaroka Mountains, branching out through the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. The winter landscape is ideal for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
The two-room cabin has an electric stove, refrigerator and lights. A wood-burning stove is provided for heat along with firewood, which is not available in July and August. The cabin can sleep up to four people on provided twin beds with mattresses. Other amenities include basic cookware and utensils, some cleaning supplies, a table with chairs, axe, bucket and shovel.
