Bake Oven Knob Shelter (1970)
The Bake Oven Knob Shelter was built in 1937 and the current shelter is still that original structure. It is typical of the log sided Adirondack lean-to design first recommended by the Appalachian Trail Conference during the original construction of the shelter chain. It is currently maintained by volunteers from the Blue Mountain Eagle Climbing Club.
