Big Creek Cabin - Livingston

With its three bedrooms, living area, and kitchen, this cabin is only a mile or two from a trailhead that feeds numerous (3) trails and leads one into the Gallatin Range. The cabin is only a half mile from the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, which frequently uses horses for its guest to explore the back country. The area is known for its wildlife of elk, bear, deer and moose. The cabin's location is the last building seen before traveling back into the headwaters of Big Creek. The numerous tributaries from Lewis, Cliff, Bark, and Mist Creeks feed into the Big Creek. One may hike over 10 miles and crest the Gallatin Divide or fish Elsie Lake.
