Love Shack baby...
This is the little shack where the trail ends. According to the logbook inside it is called "The Ridge". Looks like a good place to spend the night. Instructions say to use whatever you need, but replace it if possible. There are sleeping bags, but I wouldn't sleep in them!

I'm surprised some of the
"public land managers" haven't
dismantled it, or is it located
on private land? Does the
Cache-Wasatch Forest boundary
extend all the way west to I-15?
Now that you have it posted,
did anybody offer any info on
who the cabin actually belongs to?
I wouldn't sleep there, unless
the weather turned bad, and my
humble life depended on shelter
for the night. Nice photo!

Yeah, it's still there. I was there Thanksgiving weekend 2007. There was a couple staying there. Actually, to reach Thurston Peak from here, it requires alot of scrambling and it is very steep, so it might not be a bad idea to make it a two day one night trip, spending the night at the cabin. I have no info on who built it for you. The first time I climbed Thurston, I stumbled onto it. Kinda freaked me out. Forest land extends west down the mountain to US 89, which runs north/south along the bench of this section of the Wasatch. Thanks for the vote!

Okay, so it's a special place for you.
There's nothing wrong with having a nice
shelter to spend some time in. If its
been standing for a long time, it should
show up on topographic maps. Thanks for
posting! There were several old structures
built in Settlement Canyon near Tooele, but
they can be traced back to prominant
landowners. I'll check the maps again.

Yeah, it's pretty much a bushwack. Especially in midsummer. Once you get back up on the ridge though, it's a cake-walk.
