Did a hang/campout at this beautiful spot over Thanksgiving weekend, decided I must do it again! The site is called "Ten Mile Group Camping", it's on the AT at the confluence of the Housatonic and Ten Mile rivers.
I had in mind to meet at the parking area around 2pm. From there it's a moderate hike, maybe a mile or so in length to the campsite. Some changes in elevation but it's not Everest. It's really a beautiful walk along the river gorge. Once there, one could hike to his heart's content, after all the AT runs from Maine to Georgia, yes?
Coordinates for the parking lot are: +41° 40' 31.62", -73° 30' 36.54"
For those who need to know the rest... this parking area falls between an old covered bridge and a concrete bridge. Walk over the concrete bridge (there is a nice elevated walkway for pedestrians), then pretty much right away you make a left towards a green gate. Walk around the green gate and just keep truckin. You're on a good-size trail which tends to hang close to the river, up and down some ridges. Eventually you'll come to a spot where the main trail continues but a smaller trail continues to the left (it stays close to the river while the main trail veers away). Take the the one that goes left (it has white blazes, which indicates AT trail I believe). You'll cross a really cool footbridge across Ten Mile River and you're there, can't miss it (there's a sign and everything).
Plenty of tent space, and trees along the river for hammock hanging.
Things you should know: campfires are not allowed in this area, "stoves only". There is an outhouse, bring TP. There is also a nearby lean-to for the AT thru-hikers, which odds-are will be available if you feel it's too cold to hang. Right now weather.com thinks we'll see a low of 24F, of course this is subject to change. There is also plenty of river water for the taking/filtering/boiling/treating, and nearby the lean-to there is a hand-operated well (which I've never bothered to use but it does produce water).
So far it's me and one ground-dweller planning to go, hope you can join us!
