Buffalo Hiking Club Message Board › The Seven Lean-tos in Allegany State Park
There are 7 lean-tos in Allegany State Park. The one on the conservation trail is pretty much completely collapsed. The one near the pond/marsh at Stony Brook is very old. The three relatively new ones on the NCT/FLT (Beck Hollow, Stony Brook, and Willis Creek) are in excellent shape. All three have latrines and spring water.
In the Summit area there is a newly built (just this spring) lean-to on the Ridge Run trail. It replaces an old lean-to that once occupied the same site.
The seventh lean-to is on the Snow Snake trail. It is in better shape than the old Stony Brook lean-to, but it looks like it needs a new roof and some filler between some of the logs. These two lean-tos are for day use only.
