Lovely basic 6-person design formed with close-fitted plywood that doesn't give the mice any direct access. Two fancy, industrial strength food bag holders with multiple hooks available, although one was broken somehow as of October 2003.
Picnic table is uncovered and raised off the slope to make it level, which makes it difficult to sit down and get up, or even stand by the downill side of the table to cook.
Privy is in front of shelter to the left about 100 feet. A nice piped spring is just south back on the Trail (to the right heading south).
Western exposure, so you might see a nice sunset over the ridge but obscured by trees. Moderate direct sunlight.
The Trail here that passes within 50 feet of the shelter is heavily used by day hikers climbing up from the road to McAfee Knob, especially on weekends.
