    Popular with weekenders who park down at Gulf Hagas. Roomy with good water, but mice, chipmunks, and red squirrels very bothersome. Named after a wonderful longtime MATC volunteer. Carl Newhall built several lean-tos in Maine, including Logan Brook and Frye Notch.

    "[ATers] represent three percent of our use and about twenty percent of our effort," retired Baxter Park Director Jensen Bissell.

    Is there a fee for the use of this lean-to and is there tenting allowed around it if it is full?

    It has more moose poop per sq. ft. than any other shelter on the trail.

    I had the most wonderful (multiple) experience there but can't tell you about it, this being a family type site and all.

    ...and NO, I wasn't alone!
