Built in 1910, a recluse named Billy Carver lived undiscovered for 27 years in this remote cabin!

As you drive towards Johnson Lake, the road will end at a parking lot where you should park. There are restrooms and picnic tables located in this same area. 

Due to the low elevation, the trail around Johnson Lake is a gentle walk, but trail conditions should always be checked especially during snow season. 

The main trail is 2.2 miles and will take you around Johnson Lake. To visit the cabin, you will want to head counterclockwise which will also allow you to enjoy views of Cascade Mountain and the forested north shore.

Approximately 1 mile into the hike, you will notice a faint trail on your right-side which seems to disappear into the tall Douglas Fir and low growing Junipers. Continue down this path and the cabin will reveal itself in about 100 yards. Remember, Billy Carver lived here for 27 years so it is easy to miss!
