An amazing trek! These trails will really make you enjoy the wilderness. Plenty of creeks and seasonal streams, the meadows are breath taking, and the peaks are inspiring. Though we only saw 1, these trails are frequented by deer and elk, as evidenced by the tracks that we followed almost the entire way. The only signs of civilization come once you hit the 4x4 roads and some of the camp sites attached to them. It was peaceful, it was tough, it was worth every step!

We started at the Four Mile trail head.
We hiked about 7 miles total taking Salt Creek Trail. We saw a clearing in the trees to a beautiful view of what we believe was Marmot peak then turned around. That much of the trail took us a little less than 4 hours but if we had more time we would have liked to go to the top of Buffalo Peaks.
We went on Labor Day weekend and the leaves were already beginning to make their fall color changes... for the colors alone I'd go again!!! It's very wooded trees everyone very cool on a summer day, lots of shade and not steep at all!
