..would be interested to hear what comments people have, needs, suggestions. I'm not in charge of the shelter, but could always trek up and maintain.

My comment is, you need to tell us what shelter so we can give suggestions. :)

I thought the forum I posted it in was sufficient to let you know the topic...sorry.:o

Just wanted to see what people think about it...experiences: good? bad?...not enough mice? needs more poison ivy?

Just trolling for feedback.

It could use a nest of yellow jacket in front and under the ground. Ya know, so no one cansee them before being attacked.

We could use a link to a picture of it for this site....

Stayed there in May 2003 and the shelter was real nice and comfy on a cold rainy night. Only complaint is the water is a looong way down, but you can't do much about that ;)

The B and B up the trail a couple miles is extremely hiker friendly, though a lot of people probably don't stop there and assume otherwise. They let me use their phone and gave me a free cup of coffee and allowed me to sit out the rain. My folks came down that day to visit and we ended up staying the night since they were so nice. AT TOPO maps all over their walls as designs. I recommend it

When I lived in Easton, I used to trek up to the Leroy Smith or the Kirkridge Shelter with cold sodas and snickers bars a few evenings a week in June-July and hang out for an hour or so. I found some folks really liked that.
