The Eagle Guard Station is located in the Elkhorns Mountains. This 3-room log cabin was built in 1890 by Dick Owen for his family, was acquired by the Forest Service in 1906, and restored in 1992. The site is used for administrative purposes, but the trailhead for Trail 112, which takes you into the heart of the Elkhorn Mountains, is located approximately 0.5 mile north of the station.
Directions: Eagle Guard Station is located west of Townsend on Forest Road 4031 along the West Fork of Indian Creek for approximately 15 miles to Eagle Guard Station.
