Harbor-Gavan Trail Shelter


A small wooden shelter was built in the early 1990s for use by people hiking the trail. It is available for overnight camping on a first come, first served basis. Even if camping is not the intention, it provides a nice destination for a day hike with views of the surrounding mountains and an opportunity to read the Forest Service cabin log to see who else has been by.
