The hike to Vincent's Cabin from Vincent Gap is very short and easy. To make it longer and more challenging, start from Jackson Lake. Take the Jackson Lake Trail from the parking area to where it intersects the Pacific Crest Trail (about 2 miles). Follow the PCT down to the parking area at Vincent Gap (about 2 miles). Then hike down to Vincent's Cabin. There are some original aspects to Vincent's Cabin still, but much has been rebuilt from pictures taken when it was lived in. The story of the man known as Tom Vincent is an old west legendary tale. His real name, he admitted on his death bed in 1926, was Charles Vincent Dougherty. Wounded in the Civil War, miner in Arizona, with claim-jumping incidents and a run-in with a native american. The old west was alive and well in the San Gabriel Mountains!
