It was located at the junction of the LT and the Shrewsbury Peak Trail. A frame lean-to with bunk space for 10 or more, it was constructed in 1969 and is maintained by the Killington Section with assistance from Farm and Wilderness Camps. A truly cooperative effort. it was designed by Robert Jutson of Pittsfield, Vt, and built through the combined efforts of International Paper Company, the Sherburne Corporation, and Farm & Wilderness Camps. A good spring is located 300 ft to the east. It was in use from 1969 to 1984 at which time it was dismantled and will be reassembled on another site.
