Located atop of Clear Creek County’s majestic Squaw Mountain lies the namesake Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout; a cozy 14×14 cabin that features out-of-this-world 360 degree views of the surrounding Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests. No matter the season, Squaw Mountain is THE place to stay not only for its outdoor recreational opportunities, but also for its included amenities like beds, a kitchen, and a comfortable dining area. Access to these secluded accommodations can be found via Colorado Highway 103 (just off of I-70 at Idaho Springs) and Forest Road 192.1. (Please note that the final two miles of the trip can only be traveled by foot.)
