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.

Drove over Mule Town Road in our little RAV4 to get here, and although we had to take it slow, the conditions were still fine. The trail can be a little narrow and testy to follow, but once you get out of the river bed you have some nice views north and lots of beautiful oaks.

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.
