I think I'm out of easy ones, so I may have to give some hints for this one. I'd be really surprised if anyone gets this right out of the box.

This cabin sits at roughly 3400' and is accessible from a few different directions, all by single track. Name the "meadow" it calls home.



Side view:



Two pics from inside:



And the hitching posts outside:

Looks like the cabin along/near the Weitas Creek trail, SE of Weitas Station. Don't know the name of the meadow. My Benchmark map does not list any meadow names for that area. Been several years since I have ridden that area.

If it is the Weitas Creek I just found on Google Earth, it is a fair distance directly north from there.

I may end up bailing on this one and trying to find another location. I'm not sure how many maps even list this area, and I am pretty sure more people visit here on horseback than on wheels. I'll give it another day or so...

Sorry for the wait... Our internet connection is less than stellar and finally decided to return.

Here is the answer to where that cabin is:



With some interesting history:



So let's get this thing rolling again. Here is a group of lakes that all go by one name, easily accessed by gravel road (I took the pics from 2-track that overlooks them):





My wife and I rode to this spot and camped a few years ago.

Nope. Right state, at least.

Bingo, Ladybug! That cabin in Bronson Meadows is less than 3 miles from here. I actually had to cover up "Elsie Lake" on that green map with the "e" and "a" in "Meadows" as to not give any hints.

You guys with the big DS bikes, you really should get out and explore "Trail 16" this summer. It roughly runs from Pine Creek to Wallace with very few difficult spots and has stellar views (Just make sure to take "16B" around Silver Hill. 16A goes over it and is brutal.).

Name of the town this road is the closest to or the name of the road. It's an old picture but the road looks the same.

Looks like Bear Creek, looking towards Kingston
