From St. Joe Lake, Trail 49 leads down 5.5 miles along the St. Joe River to Medicine Creek, where Road 320 follows another 5 miles of river to Heller Creek Campground. From here, as pictured above, the river starts gathering a decent flow. This is the trailhead where backpackers begin a 17-mile trek downstream on Trail 48 through a roadless stretch of the river to Spruce Tree Campground.
