Trail Creek Cabin can be accessed from two directions:
For foot and horse travel, we recommend beginning at the trailhead on Newman Creek. To reach this, travel south off Interstate 90 (Exit 316) on the Trail Creek road for approximately 7 miles; then west on the Newman Creek road to the trailhead (1 mile). The trail to the cabin is 2.2 miles, with the first 1.7 miles crossing private property so please stay on the trail. (Note: For those coming from the south; the Newman Creek road turnoff is 5.5 miles north of the Trail Creek north of the Trail Creek road/Divide road junction.
Snowmobile and ATV travel are best accommodated from Goose Creek. To reach this, travel south off Interstate 90 (Exit 316) on the Trail Creek road for 3 miles; then east on the Goose Creek road for 2 miles to the locked gate. Parking is available at this point. The cabin is located 5.2 miles further up the road and accessible only by foot, horse, bike, ATV or snowmobile. The ATV must be less than 50 inches wide to maneuver through a slot along side the Goose Creek gate. In winter, users must use skies, snowshoes, or snowmobiles to get to it.
