An easy now hike from the parking lot to the homestead and then a short walk to the mill. The house and grounds are accessible and a stark reminder that the goal of the Ogle's was survival, not comfort.

So glad to see the cabin survived the fires. It is the one thing we did like about the Historic Nature Trail drive. We enjoyed walking around and seeing the cabin and surrounding area.

Located in the Orchard Loop area, Ogle Cabin has a beautiful surprise waiting for you if you're patient and you don't mind an extra 10 minutes of walking. Go past the cabin and the barn and you will reach a beautiful stream with flowing mini...More

It always so wonderful to see pieces of history that are still in tact. It allows one to imagine what life might have been like during that time in history.

I would say about 30 minutes unless you see the momma bear & her cubs because they are fun and awesome to watch. I won't do any trails when I start having mobility issues due to the tree roots and rocks that are always there. More
