Campsite #5 – Rich Mountain

Rich Mountain Trail – 100 yards from intersection with Indian Grave Gap Trail

Capacity: 4

Rating: 5

Water: Available from a small spring down the narrow valley from the site, or from Hesse Creek a few hundred yd. down Rich Mountain Trail.


CS 5 is the former site for the Rich Mountain Shelter, the foundation of which is still there.  The site is a small one with nice ground cover and space for a couple tents.  There is little impact and although the site is within clear view of the trail, it is sufficiently off to the side.  There is a large fallen tree to provide wind break for tarps.

Rating Summary:

  • Ample Water
  • Bear Cables
  • Low Impact
  • Dry and Level Tent Sites
