0.8 miles south of Blue Mountain summit (4,025)

via side trail to left.  Spring on A.T. just before turnoff to shelter.

There is a campsite (site of a former shelter) that is about a mile or so before this shelter if you are heading north. A great spot to stop at night as an alternative to this shelter.
