    Default Alex Kenney

    This shelter is SMALL, with two bunks and floor space. The privy is a compost privy which makes it nice. Water is a hump back up the trail and then back down where you just climbed up. I like to think that this shelter is more of a rest area where you eat your lunch or take a break. But the solitude of the shelter is surely a possibility.

    Heading North you will have crossed a stream before your climb and on the other side of the stream was a camp ground... If you tent that is your best bet at level ground.

    a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.

    In good shape on 5/30/07. If you are heading nobo you will cross a red blazed trail just before you get to the blue blaze turn off for the shelter. This red blazed trail leads to the water source. From there you can take the blue blaze uphill to the shelter. it will save you some time and less uphill walking. The clotheslines were a nice touch.

    This shelter is actually titled Alec Kennedy, I live right by this part of the AT so I hike here often. The shelter is pretty small, I'd say 6-7 people could sleep in it comfortably. There is a tenting area a few feet away and is also very nice. No bear cables that I've seen, there is a fire circle right outside the entrance with a picinic table, it makes for easy cooking and warmth. If you follow the blue trail to the spring, at the end, there is a mini waterfall and the water is delicious. Say what you want, but I don't even bother treating this stuff, its pure.
