Indian Flats Cabin is located 40 miles northeast of Helena in the Big Belt Mountains and can be accessed via Highway 280 east from Helena. Several miles after crossing the Missouri River, you will come to the small community of York. Turn left at the York Bar and proceed 5 miles to the even-smaller community of Nelson, where you should turn right. Stay on the main road up Beaver Creek, through a series of switchbacks up Burnt Gulch, past Pikes Gulch Campground to the junction of Hogback Lookout and Indian Flats roads. Take the left hand fork for about 1/2 mile and the cabin will be on the right, down in a hollow nestled amongst trees. Access to the Indian Flats Cabin is dependent on the time of year and present weather conditions. Usually during the summer and fall months, passenger cars can drive directly to the cabin.
