Fred Blixt Cabin

Located at 62.5 mile Elliott Highway, Fred Blixt Cabin provides a year-round, road-accessible getaway— perfect for a relaxing family outing or a trip to the nearby White Mountains National Recreation Area. The original cabin was built by trapper and prospector Fred Blixt in 1935. A fire destroyed the cabin in 1991, and a local log home builder reconstructed it. The rebuilt cabin, which sleeps up to six persons, again provides shelter for the traveling public while retaining some of the character of Blixt’s original structure. Cabins are equipped with bunk beds, a table and benches, cook stove, lantern, fire extinguisher, saw, ax, broom, wood stove and outhouse.

Renters need to bring fuel for the lanterns and cook stoves. BLM converted from white gas to propane cook stoves and lanterns, so make sure to bring the proper fuel! Carry extra lantern mantles (clip-on tube style) or candles in case the lanterns don't function properly. Cabin users should be prepared to cut firewood or bring some with them. Other recommended items to bring include maps and compass, matches, sleeping bag and pad, extra food items and water, and warm clothing.
