Just east of Route 12 there is a 2-person shelter which is not officially maintained. It has been used by AT hikers according to Smith Edwards.
The Hobbit Hut was built by a landowner for his children and all the bunks, windows, door, table, chairs, rail fence around the hut and etc. were in small dimensions for people about 48″ tall; thus the name. The hikers were given permission to use this place by the owner and many unusual comments were written in the register. [Ramblings, p. 117]
