The Poso Guard Station Cabin is situated on a mountain top in the Giant Sequoia National Monument in the Sequoia National Forest. Perched at an altitude of 4,480 feet, the cabin is only an hour from Bakersfield, California. The cabin has expansive views of the San Joaquin Valley and surrounding mountains, including Tobias Peak, and is a great base for a forest getaway. Poso Station Cabin was constructed in 1933 near the small town of Posey to provide a residence for fire patrolmen stationed in that area. The exterior is constructed of board and batten-style paneling nailed to a standard wooden frame. The interior has been modified with paneling, modern sliding glass windows and modern counter tops in food preparation area.
