Log Cabin Trail #808

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Log Cabin Trail is a short trail that connects Bursum Road to Mineral Creek.  This trail provides many vistas and a challenging trip for users.

The Log Cabin Trail starts at Bursum Road and heads north following a drainage for a short distance before it turns and begins to head over to Coffee Gulch.  Once the trail crosses the gulch it will ascend up to a saddle.  From the saddle the trail begins a long descent, via many switchbacks, to Mineral Creek and Mineral Creek Trail #201. This is a difficult section that is narrow with steep side slopes, stock users and mountain bikes should be very careful attempting this part of the trail. Please do not be tempted to cut the switchbacks, the soil is unstable.  Shortcutting promotes erosion and the slope is dangerous.
