He set his tent up in the shelter to avoid the bugs but did mention if it got crowded he would take it down. I saw a trail maintainer Thursday and he asked if there were any problems, I completely forgot about the bear cable but reported a tree across the trail, he said he had just taken care of that. I like that the shelter is close to the trail and it looks beautiful. The water source although a little walk has a nice picture pipe outlet to fill bags and bottles.

    The last time I slept there in 2013 there was huge trees down on the trail to the spring . A nice shelter with room for a bunch of hikers. I felt safe from bears, coons or porcupines in the loft. Did not even bear bag my food. Ain't there a Locke's metal box outside the shelter? Anyone know what the mysterious box contains?

    Box is locked, not for food. It's an effing stink bug invasion. Will most likely set the tent!
