Seasonal waterfall and onsite trails via 22 West Cabins and Recreation:

-From about May until about the first week of July the 'Open A Diamond Ditch' runs behind the cabin which creates your own private waterfall.

-Check out our onsite trail dubbed "Narnia" which is marked with Monarch Butterflies and takes you to where two waterfalls merge.

-The Elk Run Trail is a great hiking trail in the summer and a packed trail in the winter for xc ski and snowshoe.

-Winter Activities: We offer sledding, skiing and snowshoeing in the winter on packed trails.

Routt National Forest access, Mount Zirkel Wilderness, and access to the Rainbow Lakes Trailhead are all less than a half mile down the road for many hiking, hunting, and fishing excursions.

The Delaney Butte Lakes are a short drive from the cabin for ample fishing opportunities.

In late summer the drive over Buffalo Pass to Steamboat Springs is a beautiful way to experience the changing colors.

We are available during your stay should you need advice about a good trail, places to see wildlife or a good fishing spot!

You step out your door and you are "there". You will love the selcusion and the views from the cabin. Wildlife abound: moose, elk, deer, pronghorn, bear, fox, marmot, raccoon, squirrel and many species of bird from the hummingbirds of summer to the rosy finches of winter.

**Check for wildlife before letting your dog outside. Thank-you for respecting the creatures here.

**Please consider mountain conditions in the winter. The driveway to the cabin is closed in the winter, and parking is 300 feet below the cabin during this time. It is a short walk, snowshoe or ski in. Travel from Walden can be difficult in a snow storm so check your weather. Please call with any questions.
