Ptarmigan Cr Tr Shelter

This small cabin is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is primarily intended as an emergency shelter. The cabin includes a water catchment system for collecting rain and melting snow; water should be treated before cooking or drinking. There is no stove in this shelter cabin, as it is intended only as a shield to the weather. Expect to camp at least one night along this 27mile trail.
