Toms Run shelters on the Appalachian Trail prior to recent fire
One of the Toms Run Shelters on the Appalachian Trail has been destroyed by fire. These twin shelters are located south of Pine Grove Furnace State Park, near Gardners, PA, and close to the halfway marker of the Appalachian Trail. The shelters are within the Michaux State Forest.
According to Rod Lion, assistant state forest manager at Michaux, as interviewed by pennlive.com, the state police fire marshal will be asked to investigate. A video showing the shelter in flames taken by Neil Werner can be viewed by following THIS LINK.
