Description

The trail to the Pioneer Cabin is one of the area’s most popular runs. It climbs through more than 23 switchbacks up a forested ridge and across a flower-decorated plateau to one of the best vistas in the valley.

The cabin, situated at the brink of a steep drop into the North Fork of Hyndman Basin, was modeled after alpine huts in Europe. It was built by the Sun Valley Company in 1938.

Look for the quote "The higher you get, the higher you get" on the Pioneer Cabin's roof.
