A moderate loop with good vistas and no obstacles.

Saltese Uplands Conservation Area is a multi use trail network for non-motorized users. Wildlife is common and should be given space.
Dogs: Leashed


Mostly singletrack trail wandering through smooth grass covered hills. Offers nice views of the surrounding area including Liberty Lake.

This nontechnical trail provides a good area to practice and hone skills for new riders. But bikers should expect to do some steady, but reasonable, climbing.

Shade is pretty much nonexistent so plan on getting a lot of sun exposure. Bring plenty of water and be thoughtful of what time of day you ride during the Summer.

Some portions of the conservation area are criss crossed with wildlife and foot paths. Combined with a lack of signs, it can make things a bit confusing.

Saltese Uplands Conservation Area is a multi use trail network. Care should be taken to accommodate other users. Expect traffic in both directions and always yield to hikers and equestrian riders.

Dawn Patrol! It was 36F with a stiff wind, but as a plus it was Golden Hour and what mud there was was frozen. Couple of creek crossings. 4.3mi — 0h 26m

Really cool with the fog. Brush was wet and the trail spit up some sandy mud, but only two puddles I saw--easily avoided. 6mi

Definitely better doing this clockwise. The start of the trail is a little confusing because there are so many side paths but once you start up the hill it is more straightfoward. Sep 30, 2015
My favorite is figure 8. start counterclockwise. After climbing the long east side road, don't turn right onto east single track up to the top, instead continue on the north connector road to climb the west side to top. bomb down east side looping around to use lower connector (not well traveled) to cross back over & climb east side to top this time. Bomb down left side to the start. SWEET!! Aug 31, 2017
