  • Josie Morris is a very interesting person and I recommend learning more about her. However, her cabin itself provides great resources. Take the time to hike one of the two box canyons. We hiked Box Ca...  more »

  • We had a nice visit to this historic cabin. It is amazing that a woman could live alone for so many years in such tough conditions. She must have been a very strong woman. The trip to the cabin is a short walk from the car. It is worth the drive to see how she lived. Take some time to wonder the nearby trails and imagine if you could live like that now or 50+ years ago.
  • Quiet, peaceful and amazing views are at Josie's cabin! See how a lady lived for 50 years with no running water, electricity or sewer. Everything is well preserved, easy to drive to even in the smallest of cars, and restroom facilities are right there on site.
  • This is such a beautiful place, no wonder she chose to live here. It's a must see during your visit.
  • Nice walking around the cabin grounds, a few picnic tables and cleared paths. A fairly long drive on dirt road to get here.
  • The cabin is at the end of the Tour of Tilted Rocks. It's really interesting to see how someone lived off of the land, and to temporarily put yourself in Josie Morris's shoes. There's a bathroom at this location which is really convenient.
