Found this cabin ruin while exploring an obscure trail on the slopes of Pikes Peak yesterday. Sheep Creek runs in between the Barr Trail and the Cog Railway. I reached it by finding an obscure trail that leaves the Barr Trail at the saddle about half a mile past the 7.8 mile-to-go (to the summit) sign, about five miles up the Barr Trail from my home in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
The trail disappeared after about 400 yards. I bushwacked across two small streams, then mistakenly went downstream thinking I was on Sheep Creek. When it got too difficult due to excessive brush I cut up a slope on the opposite side of the stream. Once up high enough to see the forest for the trees there was a deep valley about 300 feet below me. I found an obscure trail that traversed down the valley and found the trail again alongside the real Sheep Creek. Continuing down the trail I came on the cabin ruin. The cog railway is just beyond this cabin. I ran down the cog railway for about 50 yards to where I knew there is an old road leading back to the Barr Trail completing my circuit.
