South of Pie Town, Ross Burrage found this shelter / water / resupply point which a rancher has built for bikers and hikers:
So, why is Pie Town so named? The story goes that in the 19th century there was a hotel that made pies, and placed signs at all the cross roads within a reasonable riding distance saying "PIE". Eventually, the actual name of the town was forgotten as eveyone just simply called it Pie Town.
