Cabin is a historic two-story mountaineer's cabin & requires a 1.5 mile hike on a fairly steep trail that winds 1000 ft down from the parking area. The cabin sleeps twelve; there is an upstairs loft and an attached bunkroom. There is a stream crossing at the headwaters of the Hughes River. All provisions must be packed in & trash packed out of the cabin. The cabin has a fireplace in the dining area and an airtight wood heating stove in the kitchen. The annex to the rest of the house is NOT HEATED! The cabin's airtight heating stove will boil large pots of water and can be used for cooking, but requires a hot fire and time to heat up, and may be uncomfortable to use in warm weather. A personal propane single burner camp stove is recommended for your convenience. You must forage for downed wood in the surrounding area. Collect water from nearby stream or at a spring 0.1 miles downstream along Nicholson Hollow Trail. A pit toilet outside is for human waste only. Toilet paper is not provided. When Skyline Drive is closed, cabin can be hiked into from SR 600 (4.3 miles) requiring several river crossings.
