We have no clue as to how this wooden structure survived the Great Fire of 2016. Not many parking spaces nearby so the trails away from the house are not crowded. The views of the river out back are awesome.

We love coming here and we were delighted to know that it didn't burn in the November 2016 fires. Always worth a visit to this area!!

Did this little nature walk after hiking to Rainbow fall. There is an old cabin and barn. Interesting to see how the fire was all around cabin, but buildings stayed unharmed.

Easy, short walk from the Roaring Fork Motor Trail - beautiful photos of the cabin and barn; I did not walk to the barn. So, I do not know if you can go inside.

By visiting this homestead....you step back in time to how a family lived up in these mountains many years ago! Can you just imagine how this would be, the total silence of no TV's, cell phones, electricity? It's really an eye opener! It's a beautiful setting and an experience that everyone needs....we all take so much for granted!

It amazes me that so many people lived in these homes. It sure shows us how far we have come from then to now. It is wonderful that we are able to get out of the car and walk around these buildings and get a little picture of the past. Don't drive by! Stop walk around and get a taste... More

Short, easy hike. There are several rocks and tree roots in the ground, so be careful with children, strollers, and elderly. Cabin and barn were nice. We did not take the longer trail. Worth the stop.
