    I recently finished a section hike through this area. There was quite a bit of rain about a week ago. All water sources had plenty of water at that time. There's more rain in the forecast, so I...

    I stayed here the night of May 7/8, the last night of a NOBO section hike from Kent. Everything seemed in good repair. I had no problem following the blue-blazed trail down from the AT. The...

    I see no reason Belter's shouldn't have its own thread.

    I stopped in to look around during a section hike on May 7. No issues to report.

    I made a video of the area:

    I stopped in to take a look around on May 7. No issues to report, other than an unauthorized fire ring in tent site #2. Either I'm really bad at following trails, or the viewpoint that's on the...

    I spent the night in a hammock behind the shelter on May 6/7. No issues to report. I'd guess that there are no longer beavers in residence in the pond, as the water level looked pretty low.

    I stopped in for a visit on May 7, during a Kent to Salisbury section hike. I found nothing that seemed amiss.

    I stopped in for a visit at Silver Hill Campsite on May 6. Everything seemed in good order, and the pump was working. I didn't actually use water from here, so I can't comment on water quality.

    I stopped in here on the morning of May 5. A very nice area, with lots of room for tents or hammocks, and a new-ish mouldering privy. All was ship-shape.

    I shot a short video tour of the area:

    Unless something has changed quite recently, Laurel Ridge is a Campsite. There is no shelter there, or anywhere else on the route you're considering.

    Have fun,
