Emerald Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"From the trailhead signboard go north, following signs to Wiggins Fork via Double Cabin, and in about 200 yards come to a calfto knee-deep ford of Frontier Creek. Although that simple description makes it sound easy, finding the proper trail to the creek, locating the correct crossing point, and picking up the trail on the other side of the ford are all rather tricky. Compounding the problem are numerous livestock trails that crisscross the area. Your best bet is to go upstream about 200 yards from the signboard, cross at a gravelly area, and search for the trail on the other side."
