A 3.64 mile loop trail that carries you up out of the Tensleep Creek area through large pine trees out on top of a sage brush and cedar covered plateau.

We did the salt lick trail loop and it was amazing. The climb up wasn't too hard but got a good work out in and it takes you to the top of a cliff to a beautiful forest with views of the canyon. Took us about 2 hours or less.

Serious uphill scramble in the beginning but the loop itself is easier. Beautiful views the whole way. Watch for rattlesnakes and go right at the T heading into the loop portion of the trail. Nice lower elevation for those (like myself) not used to the higher altitude of other bighorn trials. This would be a great hike to pack lunch in and enjoy the views. We took it easy and it took about 2 hours.

This is a short but steep uphill trail that provides gorgeous views of Tensleep Canyon.
