Loon Creek Area (Mf2)

This area encompasses trails, trailheads, camping and other recreation sites surrounding the Beaver-Loon Road #172, the Loon Creek Road #007 and the Indian Springs Road #004. This area is roughly bordered by the Middle Fork of the Salmon River to the north, Loon Creek and Warm Springs Creek to the east, the Wilderness boundary to the south, and the Seafoam country on the west.

Access roads are single-track dirt roads with high-elevation passes that are closed by snow during the winter. The Indian Springs Road #004 is steep, narrow, rough, and does not receive annual maintenance. There is a backcountry dirt airstrip (Upper Loon) near the end of the Loon Creek Road and near Tin Cup Campground and the Phillips Creek Trailhead.
