Homestead Foundation

Old weathered bldg foundation

Chimney Shelter

8'x10' shelter, large open area for tents, 6 picnic tables. Easily a large enough clearing for most scout troops to overnight.

Dry streambed

Another dry streambed trail crossing between Chimney and Indian Creek shelters

Logging trail crosses logging area

Old horse trail shed

Not Indian Creek shelter - don't let it fool you.

Unofficial Hammock campsite

Looked good for hammocks, would be ok for tents in a pinch. No areas that are quite level. 7.7 miles from Cold Friday Rd.
фото

A switchback!!!

8.58 miles from Cold Friday Road trail access and 2200 ft of total climbing later there is actually a switch back in the trail.

Dry streambed north of Old Forest Rd.

Numerous trees marked for logging in this area of the trail.

Hwy 462 trail crossing & parking area

Looks to be a popular starting point.

Trail junction

AHT junction to shelter near Blue River Chapel & 462 on Park map. Main loop is south and west on sign. The trail to the north heads to the Old Barn Shelter / Disabled Hunter trail access area.
фото

Larger stream crossing

AHT and horse trail run parallel in this area and both cross streambed here.

Fox Hollow Rd

Trail crosses gravel rd

Primitive Campsite Entrance North

Lunch spot where AHT cross the red blaze horse trail. North Entrance to the primitive tent site area.
фото

Primitive Campsite Entrance South

2nd picnic table by the AHT, at the south end of the primitive campsite area.
фото

Trail follows streambed

AHT comes to a large streambed. If hiking trail counter clockwise take a left on the streambed for about 100ft and trail picks back up on the right.
фото

Trail split.

After sharing trail with orange horse blaze for a bit the AHT heads down in the direction of the Blue River. This turn isn't on the post and could be easily missed.
фото

Iron Bridge

Trail does not cross this although some people cache water at the road access on the other side. Clearly cross at your own risk.

Horse Camp water resupply

Hang a left at this trail junction to head into horse camp for water. Check with park office in off season to make sure water is on.
