Northwest Saltzman Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"This keyhole loop starts at the Lower Saltzman Gate. Proceed uphill on Saltzman Road (dirt). Go right on Maple Trail, then left on Quarry Trail to the Saltzman/Leif Erikson Drive junction. Continue straight (uphill) to Saltzman Road. Go left on Wildwood Trail; left on Cleater Trail; right on Leif Erikson Drive; left on Firelane 4; left on Maple Trail; and right on Saltzman Road, heading downhill to the gate.
The first third is uphill, the middle third is flat, and the final third is downhill, providing a nice mix of elevation changes. The route is entirely in the forest and is a mix of singletrack and fire road. There are no views."
