The cabin is north of Sterling Highway in the Resurrection Creek Valley. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area. Berries ripen mid-July through mid-September.
The cabin can be accessed by hiking, horseback riding, skiing or snowshoeing at least 11.5 miles or longer, depending on weather conditions. The trail is open to snowmobiles every other year.
It is in a fairly level area, surrounded by a spruce and birch forest with views of nearby mountains and meadows.
Hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing along Resurrection Pass Trail are popular activities. Active mining operations are on private claims of the creek, yet there are designated areas for the public to pan for gold along the trail. In season, visitors hunt for moose, black and brown bears, Dall sheep, mountain goats, caribou and wolves in the surrounding forest.
