The location is ideal for getting off the grid and enjoying private trails for hiking, biking, xc ski and snowshoe. 4WD or AWD preferred travel in winter. The location is remote and beautiful. The Moose Haven is at about 9000 feet along the Park Range in the Rocky Mountains. The heat is furnished by a wood stove that does require stoking through cold nights. The composting bathroom is 20 feet away and the shower house a short walk. Water is supplied as the Moose Haven is a dry cabin. The remoteness, views, ability to have pets make this spot special. There is lots of Timothy Grass for horses, llamas or alpacas. Hiking, biking, xc ski or snowshoe opportunities right from your cabin to our Elk Run Trail or into Routt National Forest and the Mount Zirkel Wilderness makes this destination hard to beat. Downstairs is a full and twin bed and a queen fold out sofa bed upstairs. There isn't running water in the cabin however well water is provided. We provide a Blackstone grill for cooking in lieu of the fire pit. There is a fire pit with a grill for cooking at the front door when no fire ban exists, Solar powers the lights and phone. We also supply the following: blankets, linens, pillows, silverware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, French Press, glasses, cups, water, firewood for heating the cabin, matches, outside chairs, picnic table and a fire-ring with grill. The composting bathroom is 20 feet from the cabin. The shared shower house is a short walk from the cabin. Our Elk Run Trail is a great hiking or biking trail in the summer and xc ski and snowshoe in the winter. Routt National Forest and Mount Zirkel Wilderness is a short hike or ride. There are over 60 trails and 70 lakes in the Zirkel Wilderness. You will be within 100 yards of the cabin from where you park. Snowshoes and a sled come in handy as the snow gets deep. In the summer check out our trail dubbed "Narnia" which takes you to where two waterfalls merge on the Roaring Ditch which runs about the end of May until about the first week of July. The trail is marked with Monarch Butterflies. We offer sledding, skiing and snowshoeing in the winter on packed trails. Buffalo Pass is a beautiful late summer drive into Steamboat Springs. Deb, Eli and Pat are always available as the wildlife rehabilitation facility is near. If you need advice about a trail or fishing or about the wildlife just let us know. You step out of your door and you are "there". You will love the remoteness and the views. 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. The cabin is nestled against the Park Range. Please consider mountain conditions in the winter.
