Salvage Trailhead

The Salvage Trail is 1.5 miles long. The trail follows an old gravel-surfaced roadbed with rolling terrain providing flat and easy to hike sections with a few steeper inclines. This trail is linked to the Ward Creek Trail via a tunnel under Revilla Road, providing access to the Ward Lake recreation area. The opportunity for a loop hike exists by linking to the Ward Creek trail via Revilla road and Last Chance Campground and back through the trail tunnel (3.4 miles) to the main trailhead.
