A fun, quick descent and rollicking ride along a steep embankment.

Description

This trail has been added to the new Roan Cliff Chaos race format and for good reason — it's fun, fast, and has a nice rim feature to boot!

This trail is not long and can typically be done in under three minutes. However, it's proven pretty popular to add an extra mile to your ride especially if you've just ridden Hot and Nasty.

As with all Rifle trails, this one can be a challenge to locate if you're not with a local. This description assumes you are coming from the end of Hot and Nasty.

Once Hot and Nasty ends at the road, turn left onto the road and pedal uphill maybe 30 yards. Look to your left and you'll notice a trail diving into the sagebrush, this is Salty Rim. A quick, fast, downhill slalom takes you to the intersection of Hot and Nasty. Veer right to stay on Salty Rim.

From here, the trail is easy to follow and obvious. It rides near and along the rim of a dry creekbed and then turns right to ride atop an even steeper embankment. Meander along the Salty Rim and finish in a swoopy sagebrush section. Pop out at the very end of the Roan Cliff Chaos trail. Shortly after, come to a T and head right to head back towards the BLM parking lot and Rusty Shovel.

Head left to extend your ride to Surburban Decay or the Gun Loop.
