Check out our article and video on a hike to Caudill cabin. It hides far from the trailhead, high up in isolated Basin Cove. A visit is like traveling back in time, to the early 1900s heyday of a now long-gone Appalachian community. Shown here on a damp, mid-summer hike are Larry Caudill (bottom to top), teenage Alex Caudill, and Lenny Caudill, all descendants of the first Caudill born in the late-1800s cabin.
