Mountain Biking Salt Lick

***   Add a review

Salt Lick is a place I had never ridden before. Although its only 1.5 miles to the wilderness boundary there is lots of fine singletrack in this area. I even found an aqueduct. Looks like you can connect with the Frisco exit.

    Decent Beginner Trail. Gradual uphill the whole way in. Didn't know and missed the sign that the fun, singletrack portion of this trail is in National Forest and bikes are not allowed. Hiker informed us. Good ride with kids.

    No bikes in the wilderness. A few trails were included in the U.S.F.S. final plan near the trail-head.
