(17) Cabin 1-1/2 Miles Southeast of Skidoo
This site is reached via a 1-1/4-mile-long track, now almost indistinguishable, leading north from the gravel Skidoo road about 1-3/4 miles east of its junction with the paved Emigrant Canyon Road. The area was visited by members of the LCS survey crew in 1975. The only extant structure was a rude miner's cabin of tarpaper and corrugated metal probably built during the 1930s or possibly associated with the 1950s tungsten activity in the area. Miscellaneous debris littered the site. Adjacent to the shack a portion of the Skidoo pipeline scar was visible.
The cabin is not historically significant, but the Skidoo pipeline route scar will be included on the revised Skidoo Historic District National Register form.
