Rock Spring Cabin
Located in the Central District of SNP, 2 miles north of Big Meadows, this one-room cabin boasts a view of the Page Valley and the Massanutten Range, rumored to be the best of any PATC cabin. Although chilly in the winter months, the cabin offers a covered front porch with a fireplace and picnic area, a wood stove, and 2 double-width, double-deck bunks. Note that fires should be contained in the fireplace and wood stove, and firewood should be used conservatively, perk park regulations. Access the cabin from a 0.8 mile hike-in, or a challenging 5.8 mile hike-in in the case the Skyline Drive is closed. The AT Rock Spring Shelter is close by, so privacy should not be expected. Call SNP at 540/999-3500 (option 1, option 1) for Skyline Drive closure information and be prepared to pay the Park entrance fee.
For more information on this and other PATC cabins, we recommend acquiring and reading a copy of our PATC Cabins Book.
