In the 1930’s the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed many buildings within Bear Brook including cabins, pavilions, and shelters. One of these shelters remains a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by those who are willing to venture off the beaten path. I came across the Lost Shelter back in January and have struggled to find it again… until now. After a few wrong turns, slopping through the mud, and some bushwhacking I finally found it and would love to share my directions with you.
Before You Go
A word of caution. The Lost Shelter does not have a maintained trail running to it. Be aware as you move into the woods and off the main road. You will want pants and boots for this hike. Take note of landmarks as you pass them, bring a map and compass, and enjoy the adventure!
