Found on a hiking trail. It looks like a small covered shelter but the walls surrounding it make it seem like it could be for hunting.

Probably serves as a shelter in case of surprise storm and somewhere to view wildlife and not be as noticeable. There is something like that at a lake near me for watching the birds.

Looks like that's the verdict! It makes sense for sure, it was far enough out there that the birds seemed pretty jumpy around us so this would definitely make watching them easier. Solved!

I think its a bird watching hut. I could be wrong though

looks like a good place to wait out some rain

A few miles into a hiking trail in Central Florida. To the left it was very open with a few canals running perpendicular to the front face of the "entrance". I was thinking it could be related to hunting but that wouldn't make sense on a marked hiking trail. The wooded area of the trail was on the right from this perspective. There were seats you can see that line the inside, but the walls came up pretty high. There was nothing inside and all it has is a slanted roof. It was honestly sort of eerily empty. Any ideas? WITT?

Most likely just a bird watching hide which doubles as a convenient place to rest.

Its just that - a small covered shelter. You can use it to rest or hide from rain.

That graffiti looks familiar. Is this at Hal Scott by chance? If so, they're severe weather shelters.


audiotripod4

Yes! That's crazy that you recognized it. Thanks
