Salt Creek Trail 4 of 52

Date: January 25, 2017
Distance: 24 miles
Weather: Light misty rain, low 30's

Who knew that you can ride this 26-mile trail from the back of Brookfield Zoo all the way to Busse Woods?! We didn't do the whole ride this time, but we explored a 12-mile out-and-back section which may offer some of the nicest scenery on this trail. The paved path winds along the creek through a lovely woodland, punctuated with those dramatic leafless winter oaks, which look like old men standing around, with nothing much to do.

Gorgeous trail, and we definitely plan to ride this its length all the way north and back when time permits.
