Churchill Scott Shelter


Shelter Description


This post-and-beam structure was designed by Erik and Laurel Tobiason in 2002. It is named in honor of a long-time Killington Section leader and maintainer and dedicated to the memory of Alice H. Ferrence, an Appalachian Trail long-distance hiker who drowned attempting to ford Maine’s Kennebec River in 1985. Maintained by the GMC. Accommodates 8. Also has a tent platform. Handicap-accessible, composting privy. Water source is a spring downhill behind the shelter. Because this location is within the Rutland city watershed, no fires are permitted. A GMC caretaker may be present and an overnight fee charged. (Description courtesy of ATC Appalachian Trail Guide to New Hampshire-Vermont: 13th edition.)
