OverviewThe Civilian Conservation Corps originally constructed the Two Color Guard Station in the 1930s for use as crew quarters and bunkhouse. The original building was removed in 1976. The current guard station was built in 1959.
Two Color Guard Station is open year-round. Guests can drive to it except in winter, when it's only accessible by snowmobile via a series of groomed snowmobile trails. Guests staying in the winter are required to bring extra supplies to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Outside the cabin, the crystal clear waters of the Wild and Scenic Eagle Creek work their way through the mountains to the valley floor in a series of small waterfalls and whitewater rapids. The landscape features subalpine firs and white bark pine as well as meadows that burst with colorful wildflowers. Guests will find blue-green pools and dramatic rock formations scattered along the creek's path.
The cabin is near the Main Eagle Trailhead, which is southern portal into the Eagle Cap Wilderness (2 miles away). This trail is open to hikers and horseback riders.
The cabin is comfortably furnished with a table and chairs, couches, and enough beds to accommodate 12 people. Other amenities include propane lights, a propane cook stove and oven, refrigerator and heating stove. Cookware, place settings and most cooking utensils are provided.
