I left my car at this trailhead for 5 days while backpacking in Frank Church. This trailhead will lead you to a maintained trail along the river that eventually becomes the Middle Fork of the Salmon. The views are spectacular. The trailhead sees a fair amount of traffic. I was thankful for this because I returned to a flat tire and, though my fiancé and I got the situation fixed, we had several people check on us and offer to help.
