NOTE: This locality is now closed to collecting. Here are Bob Jackson's description of Rockhound Gulch:
""To reach Rockhound Gulch, take the Melakwa Lakes trail no. 1014. You will start on the west side of Denny Creek, cross to the east side via a large hewn log bridge, cross back to the west side where the trail descends a bank to a rock crossing. After this second crossing, the trail switchbacks up a hill, then comes back close to the creek canyon. At this point you will have a wide view of the cliffs of Low Mountain (5000') on your left. Just after you see this view, the trail turns left, and a poor trial goes off the right side down into Denny Creek canyon, across a flat rock outcrop above a waterfall, to a rocky-bottomed canyon up the side of Denny Mountain. This is Rockhound Gulch."
