Description:

The Nahmakanta Lake Lean-to was located on the Appalachian Trail approximately 39.3 miles south of Mt. Katahdin and was maintained by the Maine Appalachian Trail Club. This shelter was torn down in 1981 and replaced by the Wadleigh Stream Lean-to which is 2.6 miles north of the site of the Nahmakanta Lake Lean-to. The Nahmakanta Stream Lean-to is the newest MATC-maintained shelter, built in 2017, and is located 3.2 miles south of the old shelter.
