From Wrangell, head south on Zimovia Highway approximately 11 miles to Pat's Creek Road (Road 6259) and take a left. Follow road approximately 4 miles to its junction with Road 50054 and turn right. From this point on, the road becomes steep, exceeding grades of 15 percent, with sharp switchbacks and limited turnouts. Follow Road 50054 about 1.5 miles to its junction with Road 50060, making a sharp right. Stay on Road 50060 for the remaining distance. The cabin is located near the end of Road 50060. Snow can block vehicle access as late as early-June and as early as mid-October in some years. When the road is clear of snow, vehicle access is approximately 20 miles from Wrangell, with portions of the road being gravel with steep grades and tight turns. Access to the cabin requires high-clearance vehicles, or a snowmobile or off-road vehicle in the winter. The road is not suitable for RVs or trailers.
