Upper Salt side trips

It's up so we're going. Been looking for some hikes and other things to do with little luck. Any favorites or other stuff not to miss?

Coon Creek

Decent camp and bush-whack hike up Coon creek at mile 44.5 ends at dirt road under power transmission lines. We once offered up a couple cold beers to hikers we met at river camp, and were later repaid when we caught up with them at their vehicle, totally unplanned.

We've done side hikes up Lower Corral and Cherry Creeks. Cherry was the better of the two. Friends also did some technical rock climbing on walls in Hess Canyon, it was a decent short hike for the rest of us. Cibecue Creek also has a trail going up it, but can be reached by road or river. If you hit it during rain/snow runoff, Walnut Creek has a good waterfall into the Salt.

It's not far from the beginning but if you hike up Cibeque creek there is a really nice Waterfall about 3 miles up. Definitely worth checking out.
