General Information

Directions:

Cabin is located at treeline overlooking Seward and Resurrection Bay. Access can be gained through the Lost Lake Subdivision (Mile 5, Seward) which is privately owned so please be courteous of land owners rights. Cabin is located approximately 4.5 miles in via the summer hiking trail and 2.5 miles via the winter access route. The winter trail route is not recommended for summer access because of the steep terrain and wet areas. Access may also be gained via the Primrose Trail approximately 13 miles in from the trailhead at Primrose Campground (Mile 17, Seward Highway). Refer to USGS map Seward A7 and B7.


General Notes:

Be prepared for heavy fog and rain in the summer and whiteout conditions in the winter. The trail often is not open to foot travel until mid-June. You will need to bring one gallon of kerosene or number one fuel oil for each night spent at the cabin during the summer months of June through August and two gallons per night for the rest of the year. You can contact the Seward Ranger District at 288-3178 with questions.
