Horsethief Basin Cabin Hike and Relax (Crown King Area)

Description: There are several choices of 3-5 mile hikes, including a 3 mile RT hike to Housethief Basin Lake- maybe a sunset wildlife viewing around the lake. We were thinking of preparing a family-style pot-luck dinner on Friday and Saturday night, so we will send something out once people sign up. The cabin has two bedrooms and a loft for two people, one bathroom, electricity, and hot water. This event is limited to paid members. See Membership and Dues.

Difficulty: Easy if you do a few hikes, maybe 6 miles over the weekend. 

Total Distance: 3-5 miles per hike

Start Elevation: 6,300 ft. and elevation is slightly hilly

Elevation Gain: less than 1000 ft. per hike

Water to Bring: N/A

Drive Time: 3 hours from Pyle Rec Center (90 minutes on highway and 90 minutes on dirt road)

Alternate Meeting Time/Place: 10:45 AM, Denny’s at I17 and Bell Rd. on the side near Fry’s

Estimated Return Time: Sunday around 6 PM 

Minimum Attendees Required: 6

Special Instructions: 4WD or high-clearance is required. Dirt road is in okay shape except for the last several miles after we reach Crown King. If you want to leave your car at my house, let me know. 

Not sure what to bring? Checklists are available here.

      Hi Gary, we are doing a Friday sunset hike from cabin to lake in hopes of doing some wildlife watching. Will leave cabin around 5pm. On Saturday we don't have anything special planned, but we will head out somewhere probably around 10? Jesse and I are staying back to do wood cleanup with the other cabin owners. It will be good to see you!
