The Beaverhead River flows alongside the cabin across from Gallagher Creek and beneath Gallagher Mountain.
The Beaverhead River, Clark Canyon Reservoir, Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, Bannack State Park, and Virginia City are all opportunities for additional exploration in the surrounding area.
Access to the cabin is a short distance off I-15 south of Dillon. From Dillon, take the Dalys exit (#51) and turn left under the interstate, then right on the frontage road approximately 1/4 mile to an access gate and parking area on your left. You will need a combination to open the locked gate, and should lock the gate behind you to prevent other unauthorized vehicle use on this road. From here, the cabin is only 1/4 mile ahead on a lightly maintained gravel road.
