Loon Creek Road, designated as NF-007, winds its way through the backcountry of Idaho, beckoning adventurous spirits to delve deep into the untamed heart of this region. This trail is an open invitation to explore the natural beauty, the remnants of a bygone mining era, and the profound serenity that defines the vast expanse of the Salmon-Challis National Forest and the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

While journeying along this road, you'll encounter remarkable landmarks. These include the ghostly echoes of Casto, an abandoned mining settlement, the historical Oro Grande mining community, the Upper Loon Creek Airfield, the well-appointed Tin Cup Campground, and the Philips Creek Transfer Camp. Each of these destinations adds a unique facet to the captivating tapestry of this wild and remote landscape.
