Moly's Ridge: Great shelter, recently renovated. Cage is gone.
Translucent pannel in roof. Water source pretty good, slow piped spring.
Derrick Knob: not renovated, but decent. Great water source. Lots of
deer interested in seeing if anyone has anything to give them. Just
north of Derrick Knob, LOTs of pig activity. I saw two official park
pig hunters whiile I was out.
The whole trail once on top, is lined with thigh high grass and
occasional poison ivy. Good high gaiters are especially useful when the
grass is wet. Despite OR gaiters and gortex shoes, my feet got soaked
the morning after a hard rain.
You have not chosen to stay at some real pits. Good for you.
