You’ll love this fast, easy route, which sweeps through an attractive forest along the banks of cheery Salmon Creek. If you are pedaling the route during school hours, you’ll likely see the local high school cross-country team in action. This fun forest route is green and cool in the summer and golden in the fall. As an added bonus you’ll get to check out a picturesque wood bridge that spans the creek at your turnaround point. Trail surface: Singletrack and doubletrack.

Hiked this trail on south side of creek. No blowdowns, some muddy spots approaching and leaving various footbridges. Cross the bridge and return on north side (but you will be hiking next to Fish Hatchery Rd. for part of return on north side.)

Very nice introductory ride, gentle roling single track with along the shore of Salomon Creek. Very scenic and enjoyable ride for all levels. Very clear trail with minimum roots and rocks. Great starter trail or casual afternoon ride. Excellent trail
