Latest Update on Birch Spring Shelter / Site 113
I will be spending a night there in the last week of May with a group of guys.
Can anyone provide an update on the site? ie: a source of water, how level, and how much space?
I'll be coming from BC91 on the Lost Cove Trail.
Shall I refill on water before I hit the crest?

There are 6-8 leveled-off tent pads, with a short trail leading to each. It would be a tight fit to put two tents on one pad. They were in good shape when I was there last June. The spring runs through the middle of the site. It was a little buggy but otherwise a good place to stay.
Thanks for the Update Philip

I'll try to remember to take pictures and give you all an update when I'm back.
Birch Spring was a dark dank mice infested shelter, but a shelter it was.
Actually, I have good memories of Tri-Corner.
Site had no shelter but several platforms in June of 2009. Lots of biting flies due to horse access(?). Bear cables in good shape.
