The LT reaches a small clearing at 7.8 miles where the second Montclair Glen Shelter was once located. At mile 8.0 reach present day lodge [GB 21st Edition, 1977]

The NY Section was authorized to relocate certain portions of the Trail and rebuild the Montclair Glen Shelter. [LT News, May 1940]

Two camps, Cooley Glen and Hazen’s Notch are in ruins and must be rebuilt at the earliest possible time, the latter in a new and less accessible location about three-quarters of a mile north of the old one. Montclair Glen shelter is also in very dilapidated condition and in an extremely poor location, and the New York Section hopes to replace it by a better shelter nearer water and, if possible, with a good outlook. To do all these things, together with ordinary trail clearing, blaze painting and camp repairs, will require a large expenditure of man-hours, considerable material, and no small amount of woods skill and experience. These commodities are hard to find and expensive to buy. No one in the club possesses so large a store of the required skill and experience as Roy, but, as for several years past, he will be condemned to the classroom and laboratory for most of the summer. Labor for trail work is very hard to find, expects exorbitant (compared to pre-war years) wages, and, without an experienced leader, is mostly very inefficient. In order to do satisfactory trail work a man must have the hiker’s outlook or point of view, and very few hired workers do. At the same time, interest in hiking and in the Long Trail.
