Overview: This loop is made by combining the Salida Gulch Trail #93 (now #95, see notice below) with several other trails to form a nice loop hike. I call it the "Long Loop" because there is an alternative route/trailhead that will take you through Salida Gulch in a shorter distance. I'll post this in a future hike.

For this loop, park at the Lynx Northshore parking lot. Begin by taking trail 445 north. Turn right onto Trail 442, and then right onto Trail 444. You will exit Trail 444 on the road to the Gold Pan area. Here you will find bathroom facilities. Follow the road until you get to a gate. Here you will turn right onto Trail 9263. Proceed through a gate and turn right onto Trail 93, The Salida Gulch Trail. From here it is about 3/4 mile to some petroglyphs. In about 3/4 mile you will turn right onto trail 94 which takes you back to the parking lot.

2010 Notice! Salida Gulch Trail #93 no longer exists. Upper part of it has been closed to prevent access to a petroglyph site by trail users, lower part became part of new Salida View Trail #95. Possibly a full loop trail on the right (east) side of Lynx Creek. Salida Gulch - Long Loop hike is now 5.0 mi long.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
