AT Backpacking Site

This is a spacious backcountry clearing with an established fire pit that is perfect for a group with 1 or 2 tents. It is located very near where the road bumps into the AT and is a great spot to camp near the fire tower. If you can get to one of the sites up on top those have a better view option but this one is nice if it's cold and you want to be more protected from bad weather. The area, in general, is gorgeous and has beautiful hiking year-round. Check out my video below to get a better view of this site.

  • During the summer this hike can get pretty overgrown but makes for a very magical feel.
