Default orth end Alouette Lake-Robie Reid trail

Anybody have any info on the cabin at North end of the lake? I've been doing some research on Robie Reid and understand there's a cabin on the way about 5 km in from the trail head. I have seen some older posts with pics. Anybody here know if the cabin is still there? Was looking at doing an overnighter to the cabin and checking some of the trail to Robie Reid for a trip next year. Any info appreciated....thanks.

I haven't been to the cabin, though I've been nearby (on the way to Robie Reid). I have no idea what shape the cabin is in, but wouldn't have high expectations if I was you.

I saw no cabin when I went up Robie Reid this year. I wouldn't expect to find a cabin up there if I was you.

Cabin from what I understand is on a side trail off the main Robie Reid trail. Closer to lake. Old post from 2007 says parks put a new stove and roof on. No cabin up higher. And yes, not expecting too much. Any other info on rest of trail is appreciated. Thanks.

I distinctly remember an older, less travelled trail branching off from the Robie Reid trail because we weren't sure whether to continue straight or branch off right. (I think it was right). About maybe 1or 2 km past the end of the lake.

^^^ Agreed. That's what I saw as well this year, though I only noticed it on the way down and not on the way up.

Based on the descent route description in McLane's guide, that trail probably crosses the Alouette River before reaching the cabin.

Since you're a new member you may not yet know about the trail info on the 'old CT' site: https://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=1103

I don't think the trail crosses the Alouette River at all (1). Perhaps you mean one of the other tributaries to Allouette Lake?

The Robie Reid trail doesn't cross the Alouette River, but the trail branching off of it going to the cabin may do so.

Yes, with well intentions. Lived here all my life and appreciate what we have here and looking to find and enjoy more of it. Went up the Robie Reid trail last week and was just too bagged coming down to veer off for a look. Maybe next week....
