Campsite #5 – Rich Mountain
Rich Mountain Trail – 100 yards from intersection with Indian Grave Gap Trail
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.
