Salt Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide
"Even if you don’t have time for a full-blown snowshoe expedition, you must at least stop, get out of your car, and look at Salt Creek Falls. The stunning, 280-foot falls mesmerize you with their constant plunge to the creek bottom. If it’s cold enough, you’ll see the dramatic and bizarre ice formations created by the constant duress of water slamming down upon them.
The name of the creek stems, apparently, from the area’s natural mineral springs and salt licks that were used by deer. From the parking lot, take a viewpoint trail that leads along the canyon for several impressive perspectives on the landmark cascade. Watch for ice, pack your camera, and enjoy the spectacle. For more of an outing, take Salt Creek Road, a relaxing tour through intermittent pastures and meadows. Little elevation gain makes this an easy tour, even though the full round-trip distance is 5 miles."
