Directions from Sandy: Travel east on Highway 26 for 17.9 miles. Turn left (south) onto Salmon River Road #2618 and follow it for about five miles to the trailhead which is signed. Parking is available at the Salmon River Trailhead, less than a quarter mile south of the Green Canyon Way trailhead.
All down (or up) depending on direction. Painful down to end a 15 mile day... Not much to look at.
Rough hike up with the elevation. One beautiful viewpoint near the top. I could've sat there all day.
