Cutbank Backcountry Campsite lies above the Roaring River off the Lawn Lake Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park’s Mummy Range. The single-site area is 2.4 miles and 1,080 feet above the Lawn Lake Trailhead in Horseshoe Park. Cutbank is a fine campsite if you’re backpacking through the Mummy Range or climbing 13,560-foot Hagues Peak, the range high point. Lawn Lake beyond the campsite is one of the park’s beauty spots. The campsite sits at 9,620 feet in a lodgepole pine forest on the west side of Roaring River. Get water from the river, but boil or treat it before using. The site has a pit toilet. Allow two to three hours to hike from car to campsite.
Recommended season(s): June to September.
