Great sleuthing, gang.

While paddling on Lower Saranac Lake last week, we took a break on Eagle Island and were surprised to find a blazed trail that mostly followed the circumference of the island, with a few spots going inland. No map I've consulted show a trail on the island (I admit I don't have the ADK map, after inadvertently ending up with 2 National Geo maps I've accepted that as my punishment).

I'd seen several references to a lean-to on the north side of the island, but didn't encounter it or see it in this collection of photos so assume it has been removed. The old-school topo feature shows a shelter on the peninsula to the west as well.

This lean-to is on some maps as a picnic area, by its age I'm guessing it is the shelter on the old-school topo, located slightly east of where the map indicates.
