Legend Wood Shelter (Lean-to)

My father and I went out to Wyassup Lake specifically to walk the Narraganset Trail to find the Legend Wood Shelter. This shelter is clean and in good repair. The fire ring will accommodate  a small fire comfortably. The fall provides excellent views and the nearby ledge is a great place to sit and have lunch. Nestled off of the trail a bit, it is peaceful while not being too far from the road (about 3/4 miles as the crow flies).
There is a pond nearby that should provide water year round. Remember to boil and or filter your water.
