A short, but very steep trail winds up Indian Mountain to Laurie’s Ledge and an overlook just below the mountain’s summit. The two overlooks offer fine views of the surrounding mountains and ponds. The hike itself passes through beech forest and then climbs up into the spruce and rock forest atop the mountain, passing several geologically interesting features. The hike to Laurie’s Ledge on Indian Mountain begins as a pleasant meander through a beech forest. The trail climbs around exposed bedrock with broken views east of the Little Lyford Ponds and Gulf Hagas Mountain. The trail climbs to an old woods road used as a ski trail that circles around Indian Mountain. When the yellow-blazed Laurie’s Ledge Trail leaves the ski trail, you begin to climb. The trail passes four very large moss-and fern-covered boulders that appear to have at one time been one huge piece of bedrock.
