Upper Wolfjaw Lean to

I have spent many nights at the Ore Bed lean to and was wondering if Upper Wolfjaw's lean to offers any views at or near the lean to? Ore Bed has some beautiful views if you hike up the brook coming down to the Ore Bed Brook.

I camped at the tent sites near the lean-to in 2010, and don't remember any views to speak of - it was a fairly wooded location. IIRC the lean-to area was a bit more open, but I hiked past with only a quick pause, so I might have missed something.

I figured that it is mainly a place to camp in order to climb in the area as opposed to being a place to sit and look out from. Thanks.

Note the location of Wolf Jaw Lean-to on this map.
https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#....1534!-73.8481

Now locate it on this one (small forked spur trail).
http://caltopo.com/map.html#ll=44.15...17&b=sat&a=mba

You'll notice the Wolf Jaw Trail crosses Wolfjaw Brook which was scoured by Tropical Storm Irene. You can ascend the Wolf Jaw Trail, about a 1000 feet, to the junction with the Woodsfall Trail where the brook is much wider and offers a view of Big slide to the west. Alternately, you can descend the trail, about 350 feet, and then turn east, cross Wolfjaw Brook, and locate the base of the Lower Wolf Jaw Brook Slide. Ascend as high as you wish to go for views to the west.

Thanks, TB! I was there before Irene, and have been wanting to go back to LWJ via Bennies Brook Slide, but haven't had the chance yet.

How is the Short Job trail regarding views? Would it make for an interesting hike from Wolfjaw lean to?

It's been a while since I was there, but I remember Short Job having some OK, mildly interesting views. It's a perspective that is a bit different from the views from the surrounding High Peaks. Not too many people go there, mostly since I think the majority of the traffic in the area is on its way too or from a High Peak.
