    You're both right

    If you follow the AT it goes straight up the ridge. Then a blue blaze side trail cuts down hill to the shelter.

    There is ALSO another blue blaze that cuts straight over to the shelter from the lot. It is pretty straight and level.

    Awww man! I did the up and down option in the dark for my pre-wedding backpack with my bestman.

    Glad to hear there is another option for the hangout.

    If I can work it out, I will try to make it as well.

    Thanks. I'll get together with Slowhike and maybe we can carpool up there.

    It's also right around my oldest daughter's birthday, so maybe she will want to come too. Any landmarks at that location that I can look up on Google maps?

    Yes...Google Gathland State Park which is where the parking lot is. If you want an interesting little "historical" side trip, not too far from there is Washington Monument State Park where the first Washington Monument is, up near the AT. It looks nothing like the one in DC. Also, if I'm not mistaken, Gathland has some Civil War history to it. Just go online and google both of those places for more info. Tell you daughter that we'd love to have her come hang with us.

    It's a little early to tell, but I may be able to make it.
