Long Description:
Labeled "Wallen family" on the newest Bays Mountain park map link , this cabin is located up Kiner Hollow on the side of Pretty Ridge. Closest access is from the Laurel Run park in Church Hill, TN. Take the Laurel Run trail 2.0 miles to the intersection with Kiner Hollow Trail which you will pass into the Bays Mountain city park. Head southeast steeply up the trail until you see the abandoned cabin on the left in the bend. Allow a good hour and some for the hike up while passing a couple of waterfalls.

Appears to have been a four room cabin with a porch. Unsafe to enter due to severe rot, so only view from the outside. The building is being taken over by the forest as abandoned when the city park was formed several decades. The decendents of the Wallen family still live in the area.
