I enjoyed stopping to see the cabin. It is right by the road and there is a parking area so it is very easy to access. The walk to the cabin is short from the parking area.

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.

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.
