The adventurous way to the cabin.

Description

This is a fun run! Scrambling/climbing up past the waterfall isn't terribly difficult, and neither is getting down that section. Just be careful you don't generate rock-fall for those camped out at the base of the waterfall.

Once past the scrambling section, you'll find a trail that quickly becomes difficult to follow. Just follow the creek as it bends southwest. Before the creek bends west, leave it and run straight up the slope, bushwacking off-trail through dense brush and scrambling across scree.

Once up above the rock ledges, look around, and you'll find a trail that takes you to the cabin. Consider coming down the well-worn trail that follows the north ridge of Adam's Canyon. Or you could continue on up to Thurston Peak, then come down the south ridge of Adam's Canyon where there is another well-stocked cabin along the way.

Note that Adam did not build the cabin, so I don't refer to it as "Adam's Cabin." Also, I believe that users of the cabin are expected to replace what food they eat with food they bring. Don't bother reading the cabin log. There's a lot of innuendo in there.
