Hog Camp Gap to Cow Camp Gap Shelter – Cole Mountain View

Rate this Entry

This was Day 2 of a planned three day hike on the AT South, from The Priest Shelter, where I left off on my southbound trek. On day 2 I hiked from Seeley Woodworth Shelter to The Priest Shelter, and then hiked back to the upper parking of Crabtree Falls on Meadows Lane (4x4 recommended). From there I drove around to Hog Camp Gap on USFS 48 (another 1 lane dirt road but passable with a normal car) and hiked South to Cow Camp Gap Shelter. The views on Cole Mountain are outstanding and can be seen as a quick day hike and are well worth it. The shelter is quite nice and has a good spring. Mileage in and out from Cow Camp Gap Shelter and the water at Hog Camp Gap was 7.7 miles. Total for the trip was 24.3 miles.
