Loading

Summary

Jumpup Cabin is a historic two-room cabin situated on the edge of Jumpup Canyon in Kaibab National Forest. It boasts a stunning panoramic view of Kanab Creek Wilderness, and is a popular spot for hikers during spring and fall. Guests need to bring their own linens, water and firewood, and also take out what they bring in. Jumpup Cabin is close to many attractions, with Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks being a short drive away.

Overview

Since the 1900s, Jumpup cabin has been used by ranchers as well as the Forest Service, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The site consists of a historic two-room cabin, shed and composting toilet.

Recreation

Jumpup cabin is located at the trailhead for the Ranger trail, a 17-mile wilderness trail that winds through Kanab Creek. Hiking this area is very popular in the spring and fall months, but is discouraged during the hottest summer months. Water is scarce and some route-finding is required.

Facilities

Jumpup cabin is a rustic log structure with an open concept, divided into two distinct areas. A main living and cooking area which has a table and chairs, wood burning stove (the sole source of heat) and a small kitchenette with a wash tub. There is no electricity, running water or propane. Lanterns and cooking supplies are provided. The second room is a bunk room with two sets of double-over-double bunk beds. Guests will need to bring their own linens or sleeping bags. Guests must also provide their own water and fire wood. Outside there is an open air composting toilet, a fire ring and a picnic table. This site is a pack-it-out site. Guests should be prepared to do light cleaning prior to leaving to help prevent rodent issues.

Natural Features

With a panoramic view of Kanab Creek Wilderness, the cabin sits on the edge of Jumpup canyon. From the front door you take in a wide open expanse of red rock descending into canyon walls below, lined with juniper, pinyon, yuccas, sage and cliffrose. With an elevation of 5,500 feet and a predominantly southern exposure, this site is hotter and drier than many other areas in the forest. There is no water at the cabin site, but a short .25-mile hike down the Ranger trail will take you to Lower Jumpup spring, a perennial spring configured to a holding tank.

Nearby Attractions

Located 2 hours from the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, 2.5 hours from Zion National Park, and 2 hours from the scenic gateway community of Kanab, Utah, the Kaibab National Forest is situated ideally for traveling throughout the grand circle.
