PLEASE READ! The path as marked in red is WRONG. Continue straight at the fork, if you follow the red path you will go about halfway to the top of Mount Yale. It's a great view but it is not the cabin.

We really enjoyed the hike though. Good hike, trail is varied and interesting to walk.

***I fixed the track a while ago and put my recording here, it was updated a day ago and the RED TRACK IS CORRECT NOW. Regardless, if you would take the time to read the map at the TH ^^Ryan^^, you would've realized the old track was wrong and found the correct trail like I did***

Amazing trail up to Browns pass, than about another 1/4 mile down to the dilapidated cabin. Creek, forest, and old mining remnants with not much traffic. Great trail to get the family on! Don't turn off the main trail if you want to reach the cabin, always continue straight and don't hang right to go up towards Mt. Yale or left to a lake.

Despite the mileage and route being WRONG... it was a good hike and I'll do it again. The route starts correctly on Denney Creek trail. There's a fork at the 1.2m mark. AllTrails takes the Yale Peak fork, and I don't know if there's some other cabin up there but passing hikers were telling me that Browns cabin is on the Browns Pass fork and round trip from Denney Creek trailhead is 8.8, not 4.7. Thunderstorms turned me back from the pass, but I'll be back to explore both forks.
