Yeah, generally speaking- the horse trails are in rough shape and you need to be prepared accordingly. Blowdown, dense growth, etc. For the most part they follow old logging roads so the tread is...

I considered that, but I think it's just the slightly different angle that the two photos were taken at. I would guess that the large peak in the background of the older image is Seymour, where as...

I did go through my photos and found the album from when I found and followed the Petty Cutoff a few years ago. I did take a picture of the ford, but it appears to be at a different angle than...

So north of the lean-to? I'll have to look for that the next time I'm back in there.

I know there is a box toilet at CR #3... the DEC nailed the door of the outhouse shut when the box toilet...

I also would question the accuracy of the listed date of this photo. In 1965, Rondeau's would've already been abandoned for ~15 years. Yes this photo appears to show more of Rondeau's "firewood...

This one is also neat. Aerial view of Shattuck Clearing, taken by R. Linke in either 1973 or 1974. You can see the ranger station and the old bridge over the Cold River (looks like it had already...

A few more photos from the same collection. The date's aren't exact but it looks like most of these were taken in the late 50's/early 60's.

While looking for something else, I stumbled across this old photo in the Adirondack Museum archives of horseback riders and their horses crossing the Cold River. It's a bit tricky to place the...

It's probably also worth mentioning that where the Cold River joins the Raquette River, there's a lot of swampy terrain, backwaters, and side channels. It's a pretty easy area to get turned around...

The subject of Wolf Lake Road comes up every so often on these forums (and other Adirondack-related message boards). The reality is that this is not a public road. The portions of it where it...

Nice photos. This loop is a favorite of mine, and I've done variations on it more times than I can remember offhand.
