Overview

Windy Gap Cabin is not only the most remote cabin in the White Mountains Cabin system but it occupies arguably the most spectacular setting, directly across Fossil Creek from the rugged spires of the Limestone Jags. The 12’ x 16’ cabin can accommodate up to 4 persons comfortably. Cabins are equipped with bunk beds, a table and benches, cook stove, lantern, fire extinguisher, saw, ax, broom, wood stove and outhouse. Renters need to bring fuel for the lanterns and cook stoves. BLM recently converted from white gas to propane cook stoves and lanterns, so make sure to bring the proper fuel! Carry extra lantern mantles or candles in case the lanterns don't function properly. Cabin users should be prepared to cut firewood or bring some with them. Other recommended items to bring include maps and compass, matches, sleeping bag and pad, extra food items and water, and warm clothing.
