I remember it well. That was one of my longest mileage days on the trail (almost 30) all in order to catch the sunset from Max Patch. I ended up pushing on to the shelter on a night hike. I didn't get my hammock til VA otherwise I think I may have been tempted by the trees at the base. "hanger heaven..." I like it. Yes, we should do a group hang there. It is super accessible from what I remember.MM03-my name sake! Thanks for the kinds words. I bet you do remember Max Patch
from your thru-hike. I was there a couple months ago doing another timelapse. It is
a wonderful place. 3/4 mile south on the AT from the summit is hangers heaven with close access to the bald for morning or night time viewing. It would be a great place for a group hang.
