When coming from the north, Salt Road immediately provides outstanding views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range. The trail begins in an expansive meadow and quickly enters an evergreen and aspen forest. From the north, most of the trail is compact dirt, with a few places with rutting. These areas could pose problems on the trail during or after a rain shower. The trail's south end has a steep grade, which is made even more tricky due to the trail being covered with loose rocks ranging from the size of golf balls to softballs. Four low and high clearance is recommended for this section to aid in climbing this hill when coming from the south or descending this hill when coming from the north. No campsites were observed along the trail, but camping is available in the immediate area along other connecting trails.
