 Built in the summer of 1995 this is one of the new Nantahala style shelters and is a slight relocation of the previous shelter (built in 1964). The new site is slightly north of the former location and has a stream nearby on a blue-blazed trail.

Sleeps 8. No privy.

Watch for bears!

 

Relatively new and in good shape with overhang, table, and bench. Water is creek about 200 feet downhill. No privy. Plenty of mice. Within 1 mile of road (unpaved) access at Deep Gap.   -Novhiker
