Creeks, springtime wildflowers and terrific views of Mt. Lassen, Redding, and greater Shasta County are seen during the east side climb. The area was used by the Wintu Indians for hundreds of years and more recently, during the Gold Rush Era. Stone walls and some mining prospects are visible.

Mule town road was hard to reach it is currently washed out. It would be best if you have a four wheel drive vehicle to reach the trail head. Salt creek trail was alright although it was poorly maintained. It was hard to follow at certain spots where the trail was not marked. It had some pretty cool views on top of the valley. The trail loops back down to the where the beginning of the trail starts.
