A hiker to the interior of the Porkies must actually turn back the clock and call on skills that were second nature to our ancestors. One must appreciate the ways of a wilderness area to thoroughly enjoy backpacking the Porkies. Remember: the difference between tired feet and the satisfaction of an outstanding view is mostly a condition of the mind.

Rustic Cabins and Wilderness Yurts:
Rustic Cabins and Wilderness Yurts Mirror Lake 8-bunk, completed in 1946, was the first rustic cabin built at the Porkies by park staff. Since then, 18 more rustic cabins and 4 wilderness yurts have been added throughout the park and the popularity of these cabins is still as great as ever.
These cabins all offer a remote setting, with no electricity, no running water and only a woodstove for heat. It is the simple setting, simple duties and simple pleasures combined with a sense of adventure and beautiful scenery that makes the parkʼs rustic cabin program just the ticket for folks looking to get away from the concerns of the bustling modern-day world.
