This cabin is located at the 14-mile marker on Montana Highway 12, east of Townsend, Montana. From the 4-way stop in Townsend, turn east. Follow the road 14 miles and watch for the Rillway Cabin sign along the right side of the highway.  Please note, due to a concern for sight distance on the highway, only right turns are allowed when departing the cabin.
