The vibe at Adirondack Shelters
Drop some Adirondack Shelters knowledge on us.
My boyfriend and I love to hike and were looking for a fun Labor Day Weekend camping trip. We researched Catoctin's site and thought this hike-in camping adventure would be perfect! Well, the trail looked and felt as though people had not been on it in years. Not to mention the trails to get to the shelter are not easy to find or navigate. When we stopped for a map at the Visitor's Center the ranger who helped us seemed utterly shocked that we had reserved one of the shelters for two nights. Needless to say, after 3 hours of hiking through extreme brush with 50+ lbs on our backs we decided to turn back after hearing several grunts/huffs from a nearby bear friend.
