Pavilion 3 is constructed similarly to Pavilions 1 and 2. The scale is slightly smaller however, as Pavilion 3 measures forty feet long by twenty-five feet wide. The structure is enclosed with approximately three foot tall log walls. The enveloping nature of the thick walls is offset by entrances on three sides of the shelter. The cut stone fireplace and chimney help the building feel comfortable in its environment. The front of the building provides a simple but grand facade to those ascending the steps to it from the parking lot. From this angle, the chimney appears shorter and only minimally accentuates the pavilion's height. For those descending to Pavilion 3 via the Rock City Trail or the Eagle Trail however, the chimney lends height to the structure. This prevents the building from becoming lost in landscape or appearing too low to the ground. The overall impression of Pavilion 3 is welcoming; even the entrances invite people in from each angle of approach.
