Clearwater Lookout Cabin
The cabin is located approximately 22 miles from Pomeroy. Take 15th St. south out of Pomeroy for approximately 17 miles to the forest boundary where the road turns to gravel. Continue on gravel for approximately 8 miles. The cabin is located to the right at the base of Clearwater Lookout Tower. Visitors may park right beside the cabin, but not on the concrete helipad. Automobile access to this site runs from approximately mid June thru the end of Oct., depending on weather conditions. Sometimes automobile access may be earlier or later than anticipated, so when making your reservation be prepared to have an alternate travel method (snow mobile, snow shoes, etc) in case the snow stays longer in the spring, or comes earlier in the fall. We will no longer authorize refunds for inaccessibility due to inclement weather conditions. During the winter months, visitors must park at the Rose Springs Sno-park, approximately one and a half miles inside the Forest Boundary. From this point, visitors can either snow mobile or cross-country ski approximately five and a half miles over a beginning to intermediate level trail.
