This has got to be one of the best posts I've seen here in a very long time!
Thanks, considering the time it took to create I'm glad its done. Even so, if you have any suggestions as to things I may have left out don't hesitate to let me know!
I'm sure it took a lot of time to put this together, but it shows it was well worth it. Great job!
You aren't kidding! Thanks for the kind words, I hope its use ful to some...Regards, Dan
Thanks for this dwhike.
I truly appreciate great efforts you have undertaken to put this information all together.
If you or any one could add if Day / Overnight Parking is available near any location it would add further value for short distance hikers great deal.
Thank you very much dwhike
Much appreciated, I'll see what I can do! The page is due for an update anyway, plenty of changes in the last 4 years!
The eecs.utk.edu URLs to the AT shelters is changing to TNlandforms.US. E.g,
the eecs.utk.edu URLs will eventually stop working
Listed at 997.0 miles from Springer, along the stretch of the AT in VA, is "Devils Racecourse" - with a link to a photo taken in PA, not VA.
Honestly I haven't visited either site you commented on along the trail, I was trusting to the captions on the photo's...who knew you couldn't believe everything you find online!
I think they're fixed now, thanks for the heads up!
Listed at 1064.0 miles from Springer is "Chimney Rocks," but the link is to a photo DEFINITELY not taken at that location.
The Blackburn Trail Center link goes to a site that's about the David Lesser Shelter. The elevation for the Blackburn Trail Center is wrong - it should be 1,400 feet. The facility is not actually on the AT but is more than 200 feet lower, to the east. The Keys Gap link goes to a site that's about fishing in Canada.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
this is a treasure trove of information!
Bald mtn shelter @ Big Bald in NC, mile 323.0, has a piped water source. It is marked at the shelter with blue blazes and a sign.
The link at the bottom to "trail update page" is broken.
The key at the top says Restaurant is indicated by an "M". However, there are no "M"s in the list. I do see "R"s though, so I'm guessing those are the restaurants?
