    It is a nice shelter I can say that. Howevery, the day I was there I was doing my 40 mile day, a personal record. Me and Snowman of 2010 did the last 5 miles at a 5 mile an hr pace solid. Got to the road, no sooner then we hit the pavment we caught a ride to town. We did take a short break there (shelter that is) the water was wonderful and the privy is up hill from the shelter.
    I don't know

    In Waynesboro now, came through there earlier today. The stream crossing is a knee deep ford at the moment, and the privy doesn't have a roof, looks like a tree fell on it. Shelter itself is nice.

    I believe the tree fell on the privy one or two days before I came through 5/6/11. Yogi was sitting in it when the tree fell. He left a note in the register.

    We ran out of energy about 4 miles south of Paul C Wolf Shelter and stealth camped. We stopped there for a break on our way to Waynesboro in the morning and it is in a beautiful location on the stream. Walked downstream to the waterfall...would be a great spot to swim in warm weather.

    Paul Wolfe Shelter is indeed a great spot. I've been going there for years when I just have time for an easy over nighter. Several years ago I did hike in to find Mill Creek down to a trickle. If you hike in north from the Dripping Rock crossing of the Blue Ridge Parkway be sure and look for the 2 feral sheep. We saw them one weekend through the mist they must have had 500 pounds of dirty, matted wool each. They were huge!

    I met the group that takes care of this shelter when they hiked MD. They are very proud of it.

    Hello all, I am planning a short overnight hike in March to this shelter from Rockfish Gap. Is there good places to set up a tent? I really like the idea of the stream nearby, the closer I can get to the water the better. This will technically be my first trip on the AT. Anything else I should know about this area or this shelter? I look forward to hearing from everyone, thanks.

    Yes, there are a ton of tent sites down toward Mill Creek.

    I did not see tons of sites myself. There are a few. The terrain is slightly hilly.

    Great shelter and nice flat tent sites. The stream is great and the privy is new(ish) with open view to the camp below.
    Merry Christmas!

    Stayed there in Nov. 2017. A week later, according to the AT website, a bear stole a hiker's food in that area. Did not say it was at the shelter, though.
