    Default Hiking 19e to 19w

    This summer I will hiking this section of the at with a group of boy scouts about 15 of us. Since we have a large group we are trying to stay away from using shelters. Do you know if there is enough space around around roan high nob to put up 5 tents?

    Well when I was there last there was about 3 foot of snow on the ground. There is plenty of room but I do not know how flat you will find it in the summer. We had problem hanging about 20 or so hammocks.
    I am not young enough to know everything.

    Just before Roan High Knob shelter you will get to Ash Gap. You can easily find room for 5 tents here. Heading north, the water is down a steep hill to the right. There is a sign marking the water but it was a trickle in May 2014.

    Ash Gap is about half way up Roan Mountain.
