This site is intended to supplement and augment the series of Gem Trails rockhounding books published by Gem Guides Book Co. These books are very popular among the rockhound community as guides for finding all kinds of rocks and minerals. However, they can also be a source of frustration as the information often becomes outdated over time. Some sites as listed are no longer accessible and some no longer exist. The maps and directions may be inadequate or confusing and sometimes changes in the landscape render the information useless. Finally, in some cases the indicated treasure is long gone. Even newer editions of the books include obsolete information.
We have established this site to provide a means for the rockhound community to share their experiences on the Gem Trails.
