Description

Mule Creek Trail starts at the end of Salmon River Road. From there you'll have some minor climbing on an old mining road that was converted into a trail, so it is loose in spots. At the first pass, you'll pass the Big Smoky Trail and then continue climbing to another pass. The trail continues to narrow up and become more primitive as it climbs to the high point. Lots of nice views along the way to take in.
