The house was hand crafted in the early 1950's by one of Bozeman's
leading log cabin builders. Over the past several years we have
restored the house to its original roof line and to its original
configuration. A new green metal roof, new interior walls of knotty
pine, new hardwood floors, new kitchen fixtures, floor and counter
tops have been added along with a new bathroom. New knotty pine
doors were added and all but a few of the original windows have been
replaced with modern double pane windows. The house has new
underground electrical service and has been completely rewired. The
sinks, shower, water pump and hot water heater are also new. The
main part of the house is heated with a new Rinnai propane gas
heater. The bedrooms have individually controlled electric stoves
simulating cozy fireplaces.



Q: Exactly what appliances/amenities do you have in the House?

A: ENTRY: Hooks for hanging fishing and skiing gear, bench for
shoe removal in winter, bar stools at counter. KITCHEN: Electric
Stove, Refrigerator, Microwave, Coffee Maker, Toaster Oven, Toaster
and Breakfast Table. DINING: Table for six (adapts for poker, fly
tying, etc. but please wax skis outside or in entry.) LIVING:
Satellite TV (Direct TV with 7 HBO and Baseball channel packages),
VHS Tape and DVD players, CD player, Telephone, Internet
Connection, Board Games, and lots of Books many of which deal with
fly fishing, golf, hiking, skiing, etc. BEDROOMS: Each has two
twin beds (which can be combined into one king), a chest of drawers,
wall- mounted rod and clothes hangers and and a thermostatically
controlled electric stove with simulated flames for warmth and
atmosphere. UTILITY ROOM: Iron and ironing board, vaccum cleaner.
FRONT PATIO: Weber gas grill, table, chairs, umbrella. Also a
frost free hydrant for washing fishing boots etc.



Q: What outdoor activities are allowed on the Bear Creek and New
World Gulch trails?

A: These trails are under the auspices of the Montana Department of
Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) and the U.S.Forest Service
(see map on our Location page). Activities vary with the seasons.
In the spring, hikers and horse back riders use both trails.
Motorized vehicles are prohibited from using the Bear Creek Trail
from April 1st to June 30th. Motorized vehicles are not permitted
on the New World Gulch Trail at any time. In summer hikers and
horse back riders use both trails, and ATV's and motorcycles use the
Bear Creek Trail after June 30th. In winter cross country skiers
use both trails.

NOTE: At this time the Forest Service Travel Plan for the Gallatin
National Forest is not final so some of the above information may

Q: What is up these trails that would be of interest to visitors?

A: Both trails follow creeks and are very scenic and pass through
both timber and meadows with opportunities for viewing wildlife
(as mentioned above) ; and both go to lakes as can be seen on the
map on our location page. Both Mystic Lake and the Bear Lakes are a
pretty good hike from the trailhead (five to six miles) but these
lakes contain fish worthy of the hike. Topo maps of these routes
are available at the House.

Q: How difficult is the cross country skiing on these trails?

A: Bear Creek is a better choice for beginners. New World Gulch is
steep in places. Neither trail is machine groomed but generally the
snow is packed down by the various users. For groomed trails we
recommend Bohart Ranch, 15 miles up Bridger Canyon from Bozeman.

Q: Where can I find out about other events, activities or things
to do in your area?

A: Check out this web site: or ask your hosts.

Q: What is the weather like in your area?

A: We are in a semi arid climate zone and get a lot of sunshine.
When planning outdoor activities, it's always best to check the
forecast in the morning before you leave Bear Canyon. The Trailhead
House has radio and satellite TV for checking the weather.
