A new lean-to has been built in a nice drier location about 100 feet up the hill from the old Parks Hollow shelter in Sugar Hill State Forest. The two Parks Hollow lean-tos are located near the Mohawk horse/snowmobile trail, east of Maple Lane and north of Sugar Hill Rd., south of the Fire Tower area.
Hikers can access the lean-tos via a quarter-mile blue-blazed side trail which leaves the FLT ~.4 mile E of Maple Lane. The short trail into the new lean-to is rutted and wet from construction. The Forest Ranger/trail section sponsor intends to post signs into it this winter and will take in a refurbished table when the road dries a little more. The old shelter will stay for awhile and can still be used. The new lean-to was an eagle scout project. There is still no outhouse but the Forest Ranger is hoping to interest another scout in building one for his eagle project.
