Fodor's Review

Built in 1906 out of Fremont cottonwoods, this rustic one-room cabin housed Civil War veteran John Wesley Wolfe and his family after their first cabin was lost to a flash flood. Look for remains of a root cellar and a corral as well. Even older than these structures is the nearby Ute rock-art panel by the Delicate Arch trailhead. About 150 feet past the footbridge and before the trail starts to climb, you can see images of bighorn sheep and figures on horseback, as well as some smaller images believed to be dogs. To reach the panel, follow the narrow dirt trail along the rock escarpment until you see the interpretive sign. The cabin is 12.9 miles from park entrance, 1.2 miles off main road.
