Jones Mountain Cabin

Built by moonshiner, Harvey Nichols, this chestnut log cabin is located in the Central Section of SNP. Skylights and south-facing windows keep this small cabin bright and airy. Access the cabin by a strenuous 3.8 mile hike-in, the longest hike-in of all PATC cabins. There, you will find a main floor complete with 2 bunks, and eating area, counter space, and a wood stove. The fireplace in not operational at this time. Find a loft space for up to 7 mattresses and a large covered porch in the front. Hikers can explore the trail system in SNP. Note that firewood should be used conservatively, and outdoor fires are not permitted per park regulations.


For more information on this and other PATC cabins, we recommend acquiring and reading a copy of our PATC Cabins Book.
