My husband and I ride bicycles together and this trail is one of our favorites. So many places to hop on the trail and start from. We usually start at the zoo. We enjoy seeing all the wildlife: deer, ducks, geese, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.

This is a trail in the woods. It is quiet, peaceful and serene. It's an easy trail. It's beautiful the way it goes along the creek. A day spent one the salt creek trail is an awesome day!
