“An easy dirt road connection from French Gulch to Baldy Road.”— D L
There is a small parking area and trailhead 3.8 miles up French Gulch Road.
From the trailhead, run east a short way up French Gulch. Sallie Barber Road begins at a gate on the right side of the road. The trail descends briefly over French Creek before beginning a gradual climb. Pass the newly completed Turk's Trail extension 1/4 mile into the climb and Weber Gulch in another 1/2 mile. After a little over a mile of climbing the road tops out at the Sallie Barber Mine, an excellent viewpoint.
Both Nightmare on Baldy Trail (climbing steeply) and Trail of Tears (flume trail) singletracks begin South of the road at the mine.
Continue southwest and descend on the steep road through Australia Gulch and below a power line. Use caution as spring runoff can result in significant washout and rutting of this section.
At the bottom of the descent, the road flattens to a fun grade all the way to a gate. Pass through the gate onto pavement. Barney Ford Trail is on the right (West) side of the road after the gate. Continue on Sallie Barber Road to Baldy Road.
Note there is no parking at the Western end of the road. Cross Baldy Road to access Juniata Trail.
