We did the ‘exposed ridge trail’ to the shelter and then the ‘bad weather trail’ back. Out and back on the AT from the little loop to the shelter somewhere around 7-8 miles. The ride up is a little washed out. Not too terrible but don’t want to bring too low of a car up there. The expose ridge is great. Lots of rocks to climb up and down. Some great views. We saw two groups on the way to the shelter (one a family with teen agers and some adults, one a couple at the shelter) it was Labor Day so on the way back we passed a few more and a lot of jeeps on the way down. Beautiful section of the AT for sure!
