Cowboy Dinner Tree
Years and years ago when, long before there was an old shack under what is now the Cowboy Dinner Tree, the ranchers from
Paisley, Summer Lake and Siver Lake pushed their cattle through Syean trail enroute to the lush meadows of the Syean Marsh. By the time the cowboys had moved the cattle from Silver Lake lake bed to the Dinner Tree, it was considered the half-way point. Their the chuck wagon was waiting to serve-up some buckeroo beans and biscuits. Today after all these many years, the Cowboy Dinner Tree still serves-up the beans and bread, along with a slab of beef that most cowboys would only dream of on the trail!

2/3/2018 - 45Sn Silver Lake Forest Service airport is totally unuseable. In any case, it is a 7-mile walk from 45S to Cowboy Dinner Tree. A better option is the private Mahogany Mountain airstrip located directly across the road from Cowboy Dinner Tree. The folks at CDT can give you the contact details.

2/7/2005 - Recommend STRONGLY calling ahead for reservations. Especially if you can plan a week in advance. The food is FANTASTIC!!! Ask if they can get permission from the folks at the local simplot strip for landing..the forest service strip is all but unusable. Watch the power lines on the west end of strip. buzz the restaurant to let them know you are in town and they will pick you up at the west end of the strip at simplot. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Place! You can't get any better than this. Remember to BRING CASH, for they literally have no electricity and can't process a credit card.
