(from bottom) The trail follows a stream and an old stock trail up the gulch for about two miles before leaving the stream and passing through woods and meadows. A stock watering tank may be seen on the left just above the meadow. The upper portion of trail provides several panoramic vistas. The trail ends at Salt Cabin Road, a forest road that loops north off Crown Point Road (forest road #139). This is a multiple use trail and is a favorite of mountain bikers and horseback riders as well as hikers and backpackers. Lower Dadd Gulch trailhead accommodates approximately 15 vehicles.

The trail is wet in spots. The stream crossings are high and some are washed out a bit. Overall it's in pretty good shape and very fun.

 Good trail, has nice flow on upper section but watch for hikers on lower tight technical section.
