The LeRoy Smith Shelter was completed in November of 1972 off the Katellen Trail on the chapter’s maintenance section of the Appalachian Trail between Wind and Little Gap. It was built by a dedicated group of chapter volunteers and local residents led by Trails Master LeRoy Smith. A unique notched log construction technique was utilized for strength and durability. The shelter today looks much like it did following construction due to the ongoing work of maintenance and caretaking volunteers under the able guidance (for most of those years) of Ken & Pat Sacks.
