Description

At the top of the mesa the trail meets up with Rim Vista Trail. This joining of trails is marked with rock cairns and blue diamond markers on the trees.

Nice walking trail. Trail starts out level and begins a gradual ascent to the top of the mesa at about 1/4 mile into the trail. Vegetation on the trail begins with sagebrush and pinyon-pine and at higher elevations contains ponderosa pine and mixed conifers. Watch out for low-lying cactus. Salazar trail was once an access road used for uranium exploration by mining companies in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

No motorized vehicles or equipment allowed on trail or wilderness area.
