Tom's Run shelter on AT is destroyed by fire
Such a shame. Very nice place to stay.
Tom's Run shelter on Appalachian Trail is destroyed by fire
The Tom's Run camp shelter along the Appalachian Trail in Michaux State Forest was destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon, said a state forest manager.
The state police fire marshal will be asked to investigate, said Rod Lion, assistant state forest manager at Michaux. The shelter is about a mile from Michaux Road, and is near the midpoint on the Appalachian Trail.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze, but the shelter, which is open on one side, was destroyed, Lion said. A second shelter at the site was not damaged, he said.
Enjoy life and take a hike on the AT.
