Which trail did you use? I dont remember a cabin, but then again its been a long time since I hiked it. I've only done the Kendrick trail.

The old cabin is at the junction of the Kendrick trail and the Bull Basin trail...really hard to miss...I have some photos...I could try and scan if your interested...



Actually, I think it used to be considered the Fire Lookout until 1964 (or 1967?) when the current tower was constructed....



There is a plague/certificate type thing in the current tower registering it has a historical landmark.



The Pumpkin trail hits the current tower on the western end of the mountain and doesn't pass this cabin unless you continue downhill to the aforementioned junction...



Inside the small (guess 8'x10')cabin were some very old spring beds (one was a bunk), a fire log, a empty med kit, and many hiker signatures/engravings....

Historic cabin build in 1912 sits at the saddle...another 1/2 mile of switchbacks to the current fire lookout tower. From tower,great 360 degree views onward of 50-60 miles on clear days...

Found one little mistake (which could prove fatal for some folks) ..."You can also take US 180, going towards the Grand Canyon Turn on forest service road 245 then at the end take a left on to 171"...that should be a right, not a left. Nice page other than that!
