Salado Canyon Trail Description

The Salado Canyon Trail is a moderate trail constructed along portions of the abandoned Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railroad grade. Volunteers have restored a train trestle of approximately 110 feet that spans a creek, allowing a unique opportunity to 'tread on a train trestle'. This trail also is in the area of the Fresnal Fault zone with accompanying geological points of interest. The Fresnal Fault zone is one of the main features in the southern Sacramento Mountains Escarpment.
