Newton Bald Trail – 0.3 miles past the intersection with Mingus Creek Trail at Newton Bald, 5.4 miles from Newfound Gap Road and 0.1 miles from the intersection with Thomas Divide Trail
Water: About 100 yds off the ridge to a stream
Campsite #52 has a couple sections. The first is right off the trail near the bear cables and the second is up on a small nob, which has more level tent sites. The site is neither remarkable nor is it a bad spot. It could be more secluded but the upper site is sufficiently off the trail. The water source is down a steep descent off the ridge, which could be slippery and muddy in wet weather.
- Level tent sites
