Description

The trail runs up along an arroyo, crosses over, and then begins a series of steep climbs followed by a few flatter areas. It joins an old roadbed along the way, which angles steeply up the mountainside.

Vegetation increases from the start, and before you know it you are in the big trees. It is a dramatic shift from the "Pinon-Juniper belt" to the "Pine-oak belt."

The trail follows a canyon until it reaches Salazar tank. Coming back down is loose in spots, technical, and good riding.

This trail is a good workout, quite scenic and worth checking out.

According to the USFS page, Salazar Trail "was once an access road used for uranium exploration by mining companies in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s."
