Winter Cabin Trail descends gradually through Ponderosa pine, Gambel oak, and juniper trees with many shaded areas for about a mile and a half to the historic Winter Cabin. Winter Cabin Spring, which normally runs all year is located in the creek behind the cabin and about 30 feet down stream on the other side of the creek. A camp site is located near the cabin. At the cabin you can connect with Hog Hill Trail and Kelsey Winter Trail, or you can continue on Winter Cabin Trail in a southwest direction as the trail descends about 1,500 feet of elevation in 5 miles through chaparral type of vegetation and a partially shaded canyon to Sycamore Creek. There is no water available in this area of Sycamore Creek. At Sycamore Creek you can connect with the Sycamore Trail which runs down stream along Sycamore Creek. Along the lower part of Winter Cabin Trail there is a short side hike to Ott Lake where water is unreliable.
