New River and Virgin Creek to Salmon Summit and Devils Backbone Professional Review and Guide
"This trip provides a good conversation piece: How many people do you know who have hiked up Virgin Creek to Salmon Summit, or the trail along Devils Backbone—or who have driven the road to Denny, for that matter? Although some gold miners may be working legitimate claims on Virgin Creek, meeting anyone at all along the trail once you start up Virgin Creek beyond the New River junction is highly unlikely. Virgin Creek lives up to its name beyond the confluence of Soldier Creek, as virtually no one travels the rest of the way up the steep, wooded canyon to Salmon Summit or out to Devils Backbone."
