Destinations :: Rocky’s Treehouse

Rocky’s Treehouse is a mountain escape located three miles down a 4WD/AWD access road high in Utah’s Wasatch Range. This unique cabin sits above the ground on stilts and is a perfect vantage point to take in the beautiful Utah scenery from the height of the surrounding treetops.



This all-season playground is a great destination for any outdoor enthusiast thanks to many nearby activities. The Wasatch may not be the highest collection of peaks in the United States, but their relief is dramatic, and their craggy summits and ridges have excellent hiking and climbing. Within a short drive from Rocky’s, there are multiple scenic driving routes, including the Alpine Loop and Mirror Lake Highway. If you prefer enjoying the scenery from the seat of a bike or on a pair of cross-country skis, there are also plenty of options including Silver Creek Trail, or “Princess Di,” both of which are easily accessible from the bottom of the canyon.



If you happen to visit this mountain retreat in the winter, there are many world-class ski areas located nearby. Park City Ski Resort is the closest, but there are many other resorts in the area that enjoy the benefits of lake-effect snow. The dry powder that falls in Utah’s mountains produces some of the best skiing in the world (on a good season).




If fishing is more your speed, Rocky’s Treehouse enjoys easy access to blue medal fishing streams and lakes. You could cast from a float tube on Jordanelle, Rockport, or Echo lakes, or don a pair of waders and try your luck at the Weber or Provo rivers.
