If you're looking for the Fernwood Cabin (not to be confused with Adam's Cabin, which is in the same general area, but accessed primarily via the Adam's Canyon trail head), then this is the ideal location to begin your hike. It can be accessed via other routes that connect to this trail, but for the sake of preventing confusion, I recommend beginning at the Fernwood Recreation parking lot. I knew this cabin existed, I just had a somewhat difficult time finding any solid info online regarding it as the single in-an-out destination alone, by itself. About halfway up to Thurston Peak, there is a trail that veers off to the right into some trees. I missed it entirely, climbing an extra 1000+ft. before realizing I must've passed it already lol (d'oh!). On the way back down, I watched more closely for any signs of the cabin, and sure enough... had I been paying closer attention in the first place, I probably would have noticed it before. Depending on the season, you can see the green roof of the cabin peeking through the trees. It's a pretty run down little cabin, in fact its completely missing an entire wall. Kinda creepy, but still super cool none the less. This trail is very steep, particularly once you've passed the cabin (this is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars - I am not a fan of super steep lol). It goes without saying that bringing plenty of water is a must, especially during the afternoon/evening hours. Also, beware of rattlesnakes! This trail is riddled with them. However, if you don't bother them, they're just fine with your presence and won't bite you if you just walk around them (imagine that!). Again, not a favorite of mine, but it's one that I can now cross off the bucket list.
