Just found out that the caretakers there are now Hopeful and Redwing from 2005. They had been caretakers at the Blackburn Center, but have moved. Great people and have a daughter called "Hikelet".
We met them at Blackburn a few years back, great people.
The rollercoaster is quite dull which is why we did in autumn in late October and I'm glad we did. For a thru hiker, you probably would never even notice it unless you are currently doing it in this heat.

Planning a hike there this fall everything still the same?
Yes. Blackburn is open. Bears Den still run by Hopeful and redwing. Very nice hosts. Still $25 for night, pizza, shower, laundry, coke and a B&J.
.....Someday, like many others who joined WB in the early years, I may dry up and dissapear....
That will be a sweet hike.
