Although this is a short loop, it has some fun singletrack and some wonderful pools along the Salmon River. Begin by riding up the Old Salmon River Road as it gently climbs and descends along the river. You may see the trail on your right several times along the way as it touches the road in a couple of places. Tread: 3.65 miles singletrack; 2.35 miles pavement. Hazards: A few sections of steep sidehill, slick bridges, and traffic on the Old Salmon River Road.

Outstanding and extremely beautiful ride along the Salmon River. The trail travels along the river with gentle roling hills, some short fast drops, and small obsticles (rocks and roots) along the well groomed single track. This is an excellent beginners ride with many fun stopping points along the course with spectacular views of Salmon Creek. I would recomend it for anyone traveling throught the great northwest. A spectacular view of God's country.
