The "Wolfman" Cabin used to be called the "Mercury Mine." Supposedly, up until 20 or so years ago, that site was the mill site
for a murcury mine. No one I know knows where the mythical murcery mine was; it was supposed to be hidden a good distance from the Cabin, so casual lookers couldn't find it.

If you know where to look, you can see the Cabin from atop that ridge just before the Upper Springs. But, you can not see the Cabin from the road as you drive up. Until about 15 years ago, you could drive to the Cabin. But, a series of floods has washed out the trail.

I have good pictures of the site taken in the mid-80's.

Thanks! DD
