    If I recall correctly from 1978, this shelter is steeply up the hill from the trail, which makes the name "Low Gap Shelter" amusing in hind sight.

    There are "Low Gap Shelters" in several states along the AT. The Low Gap Shelter on the Georgia section of the trail is actually slightly downhill from the AT.

    Looking cold and horrible....which is how I remeber it. In fact I introduced a nice man from Texas to the refreshing qualities of hot "cool-aid".

    Stayed there in November 2003. This shelter now has 3 sides. In this pic it appears to only have a back and one side. It also has a flying squirrel.

    Rain Man,

    It had all three sides. Someone had put some plastic over half the entrance to block cold wind.

    Youngblood, in this pic, it looks as if this end has no wall. In any event, when I was there, this end did have a wall, thus the shelter was 3-sided like all the rest. Maybe my eyes are just fooling me in this photo.
