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.
Distance and Time: 7.5 miles; 4-8 hours (round trip)
Difficulty: Moderate
Elevation Change: Significant

Seasonal Notes
  • The shelter is often buried in snow through late spring.
  • Wildflowers are abundant
