Old Stone Cabin Reduced to Rubble
Those hiking to MacMillan Reservoir, using the Schuber Trail (orange) to hike up along MacMillan Brook, will have noticed that the old stone cabin just over the bridge has been reduced to rubble. The reason, according to County officials: This structure was deemed unsafe. It was a haven for drinking and drug use. It was littered with broken glass, cigarette butts, drug paraphernalia, and had very obscene graffiti. People were also lighting fires which was very dangerous with the very high fire danger we were having. Too bad about the about the landmark, but the decision seems warranted.
