The Lone Cone Cabin is the perfect spot for a summer or fall retreat, with nearby hiking and equestrian trails, big game hunting, and motorcycling and mountain biking opportunities. The cabin itself is fully equipped with a wood stove, refrigerator, electric oven/range, and cookware, and comes complete with a horse corral, feed bunk, and water trough. Guests will enjoy the beautiful mountain views and dark night sky.


The Lone Cone Cabin is a great destination for an overnight getaway or a week-long hunting trip. Located just 24 miles from Norwood, Colorado, the facility can be accessed in the summer and fall by passenger vehicle or 4WD, depending on conditions.


It is just a short walk to the Lone Cone Trailhead where hikers and equestrians can gain access to the Lizard Head Wilderness. The cabin is within the heart of quality big game hunting terrain. Off-highway vehicle enthusiasts will find a large network of forest roads to ride.

Summer: The large meadow surrounding the cabin is ideal for family gatherings and weddings. Additional mountain biking, motorcycling, hiking, equestrian and fishing opportunities can be found right out the door of the cabin or by driving just 15-20 miles to the Woods Lake Recreation Area or to Miramonte Reservoir State Wildlife Area. Opportunities abound for mushroom-picking and watching wildlife.


The cabin is equipped with a refrigerator, electric oven/range, a woodstove, cleaning supplies, cookware, dishes, and utensils. There are two bedrooms; one with two bunkbeds, and the other room has a queen bed. The cabin has one flush toilet, a shower, and a fully equipped kitchen (i.e. electric stove, microwave, refridgerator, plates, silverware, cookware, etc.). Keep in mind that if the power goes out to the cabin (happens regularly during wind storms), there is no water. Please come prepared for this possibility. A horse corral with feed bunk and water trough is provided 150 yards south of the cabin. You must bring your own certified weed-free hay.
In addition to bringing extra water; bring food, bedding (beds have mattress covers), warm clothing, flashlights, towels and toiletries. Please pack out your trash. Trash bags, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies are provided on site. 

Natural Features

The cabin sits in a large secluded meadow at 9,200 feet elevation, surrounded by an aspen and spruce forest. Guests will have an excellent view of Colorado sunsets and the Lone Cone Peak from the front porch. The night sky is very dark here. You'll likely see the milky way on a clear night!
