Old Rag Cabin

The most recent addition to the PATC cabin system, this modern cabin provides unique access to the Old Rag and Robertson Mountain trailheads, just half a mile down Nethers Road. Located in Madison County, VA, PATC volunteers including the Cadillac Crew and the Lincoln Loggers were largely responsible for the impressive, modern cabin. Fully equipped with a kitchen and wheelchair-accessible bathroom, the cabin contains a double bed, 2 double-deck bunks, and 2 single daybeds. The arrangement is ideal for two couples of families with children. Access the cabin from the adjacent parking area. Hikers can choose to climb Old Rag Mountain or seek out one of many less strenuous hiking opportunities in the area. Electronic code access enables members to make last minute reservations. Please note that pets are prohibited. 

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