FS47 is a road to nowhere with interesting scenery and side roads that might make some excellent camping spots. The road starts on FS-52-Skate Creek and climbs to about 3200 feet, then down through a lush and mossy valley. The road surprisingly becomes paved at about the 10-mile mark. However, this pavement is not maintained and has rough and bumpy sections. The road ends at a washout that has not been repaired. The road initially ended near Silver Brook, WA, but because of the washout, that section was abandoned.
