Description:

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.
