Likely In-Season!
Remote and easy to navigate old abandoned ranch road down to perennial and sycamore tree lined Rock Creek.

Hike down Rock Creek a short distance to view this historic, late 19th century-early 20th century original ranching log cabin (at waypoint N34.03812 W-111.07653).


Note: To justify this long day drive to/from, if qualified to hike, it is recommended that you "first" do the day hike to summit HAZ Hike Description - Jerky Butte and "second" drive the additional miles up FR486 and FR485 to hike Rock Creek Cabin; These two drives with hikes will make for a very long, but most rewarding day out in our remote Sierra Ancha Mountains.
