    Just an FYI for anyone hiking norh to PGF. I have an AT app on my ipad, and it has comments from hikers posted on it. A comment dated 12/26/2013 said that there is an unofficial custodian at the Birch Run shelter that is a scam artist/pervert that has herassed female hikers. He goes by the name "Birchy".

    I personally do not plan to stay at the shelter Thursday due to this because I will have two young females in my group. We will find something in the vicinity, but far enough away to stay away from Birchy.

    Thanks WV, I just copied over here so people didn't have to follow the link.

    I will be staying in the vicenity of birch run on Thursday night. My group will be leaving Caldonia Thursday morning. Looking forward to seeing you on the trail

    Anyone have a map covering the trail from Caledonia to PGSF that they could send digitally please (a scanned copy would work)? I have no internet other than a phone, so I am unable to search for one easily. Please send me a PM, and I can get you my work email address that I can log into and use a workstation to print from. If not, I hope all the trail intersections are marked well as I have never been on this section of trail before.

    Thanks Brian P.

    I have a map I can scan tonight. Just PM me your email. The trail is very well marked through that section though.

    I could also use a map. I hiked south from birch run to quarry gap on the AT back in October, but I just want to make sure I don't get lost. It'll be a big enough adventure parking my car, and getting to quarry gap this evening after sunset.

    Uphilll, I don't have a map on file, but I will take a picture of my map and send it to your phone. F.y.i for anyone going to Quarry gap who needs directions, on route 30 take a right onto Pine Grove Road, route 233. about a mile up, take a left onto quarry Gap Road. About a mile from there, it looks like the road becomes A less maintained road with a gate across it. this is the parking area for query gap. To your left will be the creek, across it and then to your right will be the shelters. Hope that helps.
