Description:

The Silers Bald Shelter, April 27, 1941. A master list of AT shelters published in the July 1939 edition of theĀ Appalachian Trailway News describes this shelter as "authorized: plans or work being proceeded with." Thus, it was built between the summer of 1939 and the spring of 1941 when this image was taken by Albert Roth. Silers Bald Shelter is located on the North Carolina side of the Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just south of Clingman's Dome, and is maintained by the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club.
