501 Shelter. Large, lavish, AND you can order pizza, subs, drinks, etc. from a nearby restaurant and they deliver! YEAH!!! This is one of the better-known AT shelters. It has a care-taker who lives next door.
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, first aid, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
