The Perch Shelter, White Mountains – The Perch Shelter is located along Perch Path in Cascade Ravine just off Randolph Path and Israel Ridge Path in the Presidential Range in the White Mountains, New Hampshire. Four tent platforms are also located at the Perch Shelter site.

Originally a birch bark building, the Perch Shelter dates back to the 1890s (around 1892) when J. Rayner Edmands built three camps in Cascade Ravine; Cascade Camp, Cliff Shelter, and the Perch Shelter. It has been renovated numerous times over the years, and the above photo shows how the shelter looked before the Randolph Mountain Club (RMC) renovated it in July / August 2010.

This is a great area to set up camp and spend a few days exploring the trail system of the Northern Presidential Range. And you can easily explore the alpine environment from the Perch Shelter site. However, this is a busy shelter, so if you plan on using it as a base camp plan accordingly.
