We put in at the bridge on Saltillo Road, and disembarked about 2 hours later on South 14th street in Wilderness Park.
It was a wonderful trip with two exceptions: 1. Putting in and 2. Getting out. Other than that, we loved it. We were very surprised at all the stuff we saw: Deer, two racoons, a flock of turkey vultures, and dozens of turtles.
Salt Creek hardly sounds scenic at first, but consider the massive cottonwood trees overhanging the river. The trip was a journey through an overhead canopy of leaves with sunlight filtering through. It was quiet and peaceful, and astonishingly close to our house.
Like I said, putting in and getting out are difficult, and I'd recommend paddling it after recent rain when the level is up. But it's definitely do-able.
