To start off, the cabin is gone. All that's left is an old corral, wheelbarrow and sheet metal.
You start off at the Mormon Grove TH and take the Saddle mountain trail to where it ends at the Sheep Creek trail intersection. Take the Sheep Creek trail. You'll go down to the Squaw Flat/Spring area after passing the Thicket Spring trail. Soon you'll hit the Sheep Creek / Copper Camp intersection. Stay on the Sheep Creek trail. You'll climb up, level for a bit and then have some rolling hills to a high point of 5,500 feet. Then you'll drop down into the Sheep Creek. As you enter the creek the trail gets a little harder to follow. There are cairns. The trail follows the creek downhill. Soon you'll level off and hit the Sheep Creek seep. There's an old cement spring box and a dismantled corral. After this point, the trail gets faint. The trick I learned was that the trail more or less follows an old abandoned fence line. Look for this waypoint: N33 59.9629 W111 33.4716. This is the canyon where the cabin is located. If you'll lucky and look close enough, there is a well cairned trail into the canyon. I didn't see it going in; I found the cabin by going up the creek. I found the trail coming back from the cabin. What's funny is that the cabin trail is a better trail than the Sheep Creek trail in this area.
Return the way you came. Or if you like to seek adventure and like route finding, try and find the Sears trail or continue on the Sheep creek trail.
