Pear Lake Winter Hut – Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks CA

Description

The Pear Lake Winter Hut was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1939-41 as a ranger station for Sequoia National Park.  It now serves as a ranger station in the summer and as a ski hut for backcountry skiers in winter. 

The hut is 17′ x 30′ and constructed of stone in the national park rustic style.  The steeply pitched gable roof is supported by a framework of log rafters and brackets, with a shake roof.  A gable covers the second-story balcony and a rear gable is covered with board and batten. It sleeps ten people.

The Peak Lake Winter Hut/Ranger Station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Pear Lake is found at 9,200 feet in the High Sierra.
