From Bozeman, head west on Main Street for approximately six miles until you reach Four Corners. Turn left at the stop light and head south on Highway 191. Continue five miles past Big Sky to Doe Creek Road --during the winter months, park just beyond the cattle guard; during summer you can proceed another four miles to the trailhead. From the trailhead, the cabin is another 9.5 miles. (Winter travelers will have a 13.5 mile trip.)
ABOUT THE TRAIL: In winter, follow the groomed snowmobile trail up to the ridge, then follow the ridge to the Yellow Mule Cabin sign. In the summer months, from the trailhead, follow the trail markers up the ridge and to the cabin sign (follow ATV track to cabin). The cabin sits about 300 yards down a draw and is NOT easily visible from the ridge. This is a long, but gentle trip until you reach the top of the draw above the cabin. (IF IT IS STORMING and you are not familiar with the terrain, please do not try to go to the cabin. The trip can be difficult in a storm even if you know the route.)
