Upper Granite Canyon Patrol Cabin

The Upper Granite Canyon Patrol Cabin was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps about 1935. The log structure is located in the extreme southwest backcountry of Grand Teton National Park. The cabin was built to a standard design for such structures, in the National Park Service Rustic style. The Moran Bay Patrol Cabin is similar.

The patrol cabin is a one story log cabin on a log sill foundation using 14-inch (36 cm) logs. The cabin is square in plan with asphalt roll roofing on the gabled roof. The door retains its original wrought iron hardware. The interior is floored with 8-inch (20 cm) boards, cut to a length of 3 feet (0.91 m) to fit a pack saddle. The interior logs are trimmed with split-pole chinking. The ceiling is open, with exposed log framing.

The Upper Granite Canyon Patrol Cabin was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 19, 1998.
