Salt Creek Trail provides access into Buffalo Peaks Wilderness and parts of the trail are also located outside of the wilderness area. Because of this, it's available for a variety of uses such as quiet backcountry hiking as well as mountain biking. Be sure you are aware of which part of the trail you are on, so that you don't violate any rules that govern the use of wilderness areas, such as no mountain biking.
