Need to Know

Yield the shelter to through-hikers of the AT.

Description

The trail is well-marked from the Appalachian Trail. It is a narrow and rocky trail that in fall can be a little difficult to follow due to leaves on the ground. The shelter is one of the better ones I've come across, plus there is a picnic table, outhouse, and bear box.
