Aspen Cabin was built in the summer of 1930 and was originally used as an administrative cabin by US Forest Service employees. No longer needed as a guard station, the cabin was not used during the 1980s. The Forest Service entered into a partnership with a local snowmobiling club to use the cabin as a warming shelter for snowmobilers and cross-country skiers during the 1990s.
