Trail starts off of highway 299 and follows salt creek all the way to the Sacramento River Trail. Lower salt creek trail can be skinny in spots with exposed cliffs and the creek below. Rides really well in both directions. Once you hit the River trail you can link into many other trails in the area. If there has been a lot of rain you will have a decent size creek to cross just in from the start of the trail.

Access Info

Right off of highway 299 on the north side of the highway from the Upper Salt Creek parking area.

       One of my favorite trails around here. Very slow and fairly technical. NOT a begginer trail!
