Large site near trailhead

This is a really great group backpacking site near the Mooney gap trailhead and near the AT that is perfect for heading up to the nearby Albert Firetower. I would first suggest checking out my video since that will give you the best idea of what the site provides. However, I do want to suggest that if you stay here don't continue down the trail I went on since it doesn't actually connect back to the main trail. I had to do a little bit of climbing/bushwacking to rejoin my group. The only major downside to this site is it doesn't have super easy water access but since it is so close to the parking area this is something that can be prepared for.
