    Default New River (Table Mesa) Line Cabin, Arizona

    Unfortunately, there's only foundations left, but the trip is worth it. Here's a picture to what I've been told is an old line cabin along the New River (Table Mesa) Forest Road 41 north of Phoenix.

    It's an easy 4WD day trip out of Phoenix. The trail follows the New River Canyon and Wash. Very scenic.

    The views alone would make the trip worth it. Great photos as usual, thanks for posting them.

    Very nice. Thanks for the pictures and write-up. I've driven through that general area dozens of times along I-17 but have never left the interstate to check it out. I may have to head on down there when it gets too cold up here in Flag. It is supposed to get down to 38 tonight but the daytime temps are wonderful.

    Great find! Though I don't know if any building with a concrete pad is a "line cabin". I think of that term as more of a shack, though I could be wrong. Anyway, cool fine & wonderful scenery. Nice pile o' rocks too.

    Thanks for the report.

    Vulture,

    Agree, it was a pretty big building with a concrete floor for what I would think of as a line cabin. I got that reference from the The Backcountry Adventures: Arizona book (they though it may be a line cabin). I also just heard that the ranchers in the area are closing down many of the roads do they keep some of the gold they are pulling out of the mines to themselves. Not sure what ranchers are doing gold mining, but that's the rumor.
