These are the trails you want to take to follow this path: From the Park Office, take Boston Mill Road to the left for about 0.4 miles. At a well-marked junction, take a right to follow the South Ridge Trail for 1.5 miles. When the South Ridge Trail meets the North Ridge Trail, take a left. After about a mile. you'll take a left at the junction with the Appalachian Trail. About a mile on the AT will take you from Sky Meadows park into the Thompson Wildlife Management Area, and from here on out it's easy to stay on the well-blazed trail to the Shelter area and then retrace your steps back. Overall, the first 2 miles are strenuous because of the incline, but it's easier going after that. The shelter was great, with a picnic table and a firepit.Show more
