Appalachian Trail Histories

The Springer Mountain Shelter is located near the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. This image is of an older incarnation of the shelter. The Georgia Appalachian Trail Club tore down this version of the shelter and replaced it with the larger version that hikers encounter today.

The Hawk Mountain Shelter in Georgia is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, about eight miles north of the southern terminus of the Trail at Springer Mountain. As a result, it is often the first stop for northbound hikers. This image shows the shelter as it was in 1974. It has subsequently been rebuilt by the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club.
