Lonesome Lake Hut - 2760'
This is the second newest of the AMC's 8 mountain huts, build in
1964 next to this shallow
mountain lake with easy access
from Franconia Notch. The main building
holds the kitchen with 46 guests sleeping
in seperate bunkhouses. The hut is now
a family hut, with special programs for children. The hut is open from
May to the middle of October and
guests sleep in seperate bunkhouses. Starting
in the winter of 2002-2003 the hut will be open on a caretaker basis. This
means hikers carry and prepare their own food in the hut kitchen.
