This day hike leads from Salt Creek Summit Trailhead over Wing Ridge to Tenderfoot Wagon Road Trail. This trail can be used as a more scenic, and also far more strenuous, alternate to Tenderfoot Wagon Road Trail. (Trail 1828) The first 3 miles of this trail goes through an area burned by the 1989 Canal Fire. From Salt Creek Summit (6,100 ft.) go west across FR 39 and the canal bridge. After crossing the bridge, bear left and climb past the cross-country ski trails, which are marked with blue diamonds, as is Wing Ridge Trail at this point. At 0.3 mile the trail crosses the top of a small rise, then drops slightly.
