There are no “services” located on the district, so travelers should have plenty of gas, food and water for their visit, including planning for possible emergency situations. The travel route to the cabin can be quite challenging even treacherous at times, as the gravel roads on the district can be quite rough and partially blocked with debris. The preferred route into the cabin is via U.S Hwy 12 to FS Road #107 (Saddle Camp) located at mile marker 139.7 approximately 25 miles west of Powell, ID on U.S Hwy 12. Follow Rd 107 north, twelve miles to Saddle Camp Junction with roads #500 & #587. Take a hard left on the #500 Rd heading west. Follow #500 Rd 4 miles to 12 mile saddle and the trail #20 TH (Weitas Creek). From 12 mile saddle to Liz Creek Cabin is a 9.5 mile moderate hike down into the cabin on trail #20, a multi-use motorized trail open to ATV/UTV to within 1.5 miles of the cabin. Visitors are strongly advised to consult a map as well as the forest website, prior to reserving or traveling to the cabin, all mileages given are an approximation.
