Salt Creek Trail (#618)
This gorgeous, roller-coaster trail rolls around near the scenic Buffalo Peaks Wilderness with the high, rounded, impressive peaks looming in the distance. Expect a rich variety of flora with a forest of aspens and ponderosa and limber pine, bright lichen on scattered rocks, evergreen forests, riparian valleys, and foothills vistas. This trailhead can be used for enjoyable short out-and-back hikes in either direction; a long thru-hike to the north that would be an excellent, easy, point-to-point backpack with a car shuttle; or a very long, challenging dayhike. The description below covers two separate dayhikes.
