very tough on a few crests.. but thoroughly enjoyable
Very hard and steep incline for the first 3 miles. If you don't have a 4x4 you have to walk a mile to the trailhead. Make sure to have a map handy or you won't find it. Salmon creek is a half way point to Packsaddle cave and is very pretty in the spring. Very little shade on the trail so make sure you have water.
