Rieveley’s Pond Hut was built by PAWS and the BOMB Squad. It is located very close to the edge of the pond it is named after, and some of us have considered renaming it Frog Chorus Hut – and when you visit you will know why! Approach silently.
As represented in the photo above, Rieveley’s Pond Hut is an open shelter, with a sleeping loft up top. It makes a lovely day-hike destination from the Appleton Canyon Trail or Marathon Trail.
To show just how much this hut was needed, while it was being constructed, the work crew showed up one morning after an unexpected late spring snowfall to find two hikers sleeping in the almost-finished loft!
