This fairly steep trail winds down the mountainside 1.4 mi where you must cross a stream, the headwaters of the Hughes River. Normally, large boulders and stones provide a dry crossing; however, after an extremely heavy rain, the water could be higher. In normal conditions, the river is about 10 ft wide and 10in deep by the cabin.
Hike-in when Skyline Drive closed - 4.3 miles, several river crossings with stepping stones; all shallow in normal water conditions.
For more information on this and other PATC cabins, we recommend acquiring and reading a copy of our Cabins Guide.
