Notch Cabin is located in Montana
Notch Cabin is about 62 miles from Ennis, Montana. The final 28 miles are gravel, dirt or primitive two-track. From Ennis, take Montana Highway 287 west for 23 miles to Alder. At Alder, turn south toward Ruby Reservoir (County 248) and travel 21 miles. Turn right on Ledford Creek Road (County 50) and travel southwest for 3 miles to signed junction. Turn right and after about 4.5 miles, you'll enter the Robb-Ledford WMA. Continue for 0.5 mile to junction, turn right and travel for 5 miles. This stretch of the road will split, with the option of going around or over a hill, then reconnecting a short distance later. After the 5 miles, the Springbrook road joins in from the west. Continue south toward the mountains and cross Ledford Creek after about 3.5 miles. Go 0.5 mile farther, and you'll reach the Forest Boundary. The cabin lies 1 mile beyond the boundary. The route is signed. You'll see the cabin straight ahead just as the road turns left across the creek. Driving time from Ennis is nearly 3 hours, with the last 9 miles taking over an hour. Cabin may also be accessed via Sweetwater Creek Road, then Springbrook road. This route is not signed. See map for details.
