OverviewMcCain Guard Station is a rustic cabin that is popular year-round. In summer, hikers and horseback riders frequent the cabin, and snowmobile enthusiasts make use of the cabin throughout the winter. Several trails are nearby, and the open meadows offer gentle sledding for younger riders. Winter access in by snowmobile only on a groomed trail.
Constructed in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the cabin welcomes guests to experience the rustic getaway with impressive scenery. You may bring horses, provided Forest Service Horses are not at the cabin. The entire compound is Free Graze for horses.
Nestled in a mountain valley at 6,900 feet in elevation, the cabin is perched near a creek that flows into Little Greys River. Pines line the hillsides, but no trees are near enough to offer natural shade to the cabin complex.
Numerous creeks and the Little Greys River meander through the area, offering nice fishing opportunities. Hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle trails are also in the vicinity. This includes Big Springs Trail and the 9-mile Bailey Creek Trail.
The nonelectric two-room dwelling fits eight overnight guests and an additional five guests may camp outside. A vault toilet, picnic table and fire ring are located outside behind the cabin.
The cabin is 23 miles from Alpine, and the nearest grocery store, gas station and restaurant are located. Due to gravel mountain roads, this drive takes over an hour.
