Hemlock Butte Cabin is a very primitive backcountry winter experience, and guests who stay here should be experienced in winter backcountry travel. It is this remoteness that makes the 4-mile ski or snowshoe to the cabin worth the effort. The cabin was built by the Edelweiss Ski Club in 1990 and has room for about 12 people. There are often occupants from several different groups staying in the cabin at the same time. Only a few basic amenities are offered, so guests should be prepared to pack in most of their own supplies and gear. Drinking water is not available at the cabin; a pot is provided for melting snow The cabin is only available to reservation holders; there is no first-come, first-served use The cabin has a capacity of 12 people per night Guests who make a reservation for two people for a single night could potentially be sharing the cabin with 10 others from multiple groups; please be respectful of others Pets are not allowed in the cabin or surrounding area Please pack out all trash and leave the cabin cleaner than found Mid-season firewood restocking is impossible; please be conservative with the firewood Snowmobiles are not permitted on the Hemlock Butte Trail Learn more about Umpqua National Forest Don’t Move Firewood: Please protect Pacific Northwest forests by preventing the spread of invasive species.
