There is a large parking lot at this Trailhead for trailers and you can drive snowmobiles to and from the cabin from there.
The Trailhead #37-A is just down from the cabin at the cross roads of Parkview Road and 64 6/10 Road. This trail 37-A intersects #37. While our guest you can park trailers on Parkview road tight to the right so that the plow can drive by. Then drive the snowmobile or your car/truck to and from the cabin.

About half way through the meadow, the trail will intersect the SP Trail near Monument Creek. NOTE: The large heated garage is the perfect place to park and work on your snowmobiles.
