Here’s a map containing some key markers related to Amy’s disappearance.
Marked are the locations of Amy’s car, the found pen and confirmed cadaver dog indications in the area. (Those dog hits were made several years later)
The ‘Burnt Gulch Road’ is a local reference to Forest Service Road #305.
If you play with the map, you’ll see that Burnt Gulch itself runs about two miles from Forest Service Road #352 south to the marshy beaver ponds at the base of Meyer Outlook (which is the highest point in the area). The only camping in Burnt Gulch is in the area near where the Eaton family site is reported to have been.
The distance between Amy’s car and the Eaton site along the forest service road is about 1 mile.
Amy was apparently in the area planning a new 10k road race on the day she disappeared. The #3001K turnoff at Frye Lake is 6.4 miles (almost exactly 10k) from the Louis Lake Road parking area. It’s a near perfect 10k race route from the parking area, up the switchbacks, and down the stretch along the lake. Yet Amy’s car found 2.5 miles further down the road.
