Sheltered tables out of sun and rain, running water in washrooms and access to the Appalachian Trail make this a nice place to stop for a picnic lunch

Beautiful views from this lovely picnic stop. Picnic tables, Restrooms, and a nice portion of the AP trail. I hiked a short distance on the trail here.
