The Hidden Forest Cabin is an old game warden's dwelling in Clark County, Nevada.[2] It is located on Hidden Forest Road, in the Hidden Forest, in Clark County near the Sheep Range.[2]

History

The cabin is believed to have been constructed in the 1880s and 1890s and could have been used by hunters, prospectors, trappers, or outlaws. It is also believed that it was used during Prohibition by bootleggers.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 20, 1975.[3]

Today, vehicle traffic to the cabin is prohibited, but it is a popular hike.[4]
