Off the Beaten Path....Kind of.

We really enjoyed this site. It was pretty close to the summit of My. Avery, so please be aware you are getting to the thin sections of tree line. There are a few nice and sturdy platforms here which are quite nice. I would definitely recommend tying your tent down, however. There was a TON of wind up here and it was relentless. Any significant period of absence and our tent would have been in the trees, had we not tied it down. There were a few water sources around. One on the outer edges of the tent sites, though this was did not have much when we were there. There was a better one that was directly on the Appalachian trail headed towards Avery. We felt as though there wasn't many people camping especially being right off the AT. However, the next morning when we were hiking out we passed out section not far from us with probably 20 tents strewn along the trail. Not sure if they just didn't know this sit existed? Either way, we've hiked a ton, and for long periods of time it still bugs me that people just tent wherever they feel like it, especially directly on a trail!

Overall this site was fantastic. Great location on a great loop through the Bigelows. Good water sources and great platforms. Would definitely recommend for anyone doing a loop through here. Or for someone passing through on the AT.
