Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This area is garnet country; several businesses along ID 3 are based on mining and processing the mineral, sometimes seen as a red gemstone in polished form. Rock hounds will find this campground one of the most interesting in Idaho. A number of informal camping spots (dispersed camping) can be found along several nearby trails and roads.

Finding the campground: From Clarkia drive 5 miles northwest on ID 3, then turn left at the sign for Emerald Creek Recreation Area and drive 6 miles southwest on FR 447."
