This easy, short 4x4 trail leads to the Winter Cabin hiking trailhead. It is mostly dirt with embedded rocks, which can make it muddy after rainstorms. The most challenging section of the trail will likely fill with water. Camping is limited due to the trail's short distance, but you can find spots closer to FR 538 that can accommodate 2-3 vehicles. The ground at these sites is relatively flat, with a dirt and rock base.

Once you start hiking, you'll encounter the historic Winter Cabin and a primitive campsite approximately 1.5 miles down the Winter Cabin Hiking Trail. If you continue, the trail will take you 1,500 feet into the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness area. The hiking trail also connects to Hog Hill Trail and Kelsey Trail. This area is quite remote, so please take all necessary safety precautions.
