Little Salty Trail
Little Salty is part of the Klondike Bluffs area trail complex. It's a 1.7 mile up-down route. Altitude is 5000 feet at the ridge. At the top, it begins on Baby Steps on a saddle of the ridge. The EKG Trail transects it about 0.7 miles from the bottom, where it ends on the Copper Ridge Road. Most riders will do Little Salty as a downhill. After reaching the saddle 8.7 miles into the Baby Steps Loop, riders veer downhill on Little Salty to avoid a bit of nasty climb on Baby Steps.

Getting there: Starting at the Colorado River, drive 15 miles north from Moab. Look for a turnout with parking on the right and a sign for Klondike Bluffs Road. There will usually be cars parked there (GPS N 38 44.452' W 109 44.037'). For a longer ride, park here and ride up the road.  Most cyclists will choose to go through the gate and drive 2.7 miles. Keep left at the fork. At 2.8 miles, park your car in the broad parking area by the fence. Go eastbound across the cattleguard through the fence and begin your ride.
