David Logan Shelter Dedication, Oct. 16, 1976

This shelter is 0.2 mi. down the New Boston Trail. It is a framed lean-to with bunks for 8 and was built with the help of 60 campers from the Vermont Camping Association under the direction of GMC’s George Pearlstein. It was named in memory of David Logan, an active club member whose family and friends provided funds and assistance. A reliable source of water is located 200 ft. north of the shelter. The Carmel Camp previously occupied this location. It has been in use from about 1976 to present. [GB 24th Edition 1996]

Carmel Camp, the last of the steel palaces on the LT, is no more. It gave-way in August to a new David Logan Shelter. It is a duplicate of Tucker- Johnson Shelter. It is a memorial to the late David Logan, of Norwich, Vt., by his family and friends. An enthusiastic LT hiker, an End-to-Ender, and a prospective Caretaker. This outstanding young man had deep feelings about the nature of the Trail and the need for its enlightened stewardship. Dedication ceremonies were scheduled for Oct. 16, 1976. [LT News, Nov. 1976]
