At first glance the Powerline Trail doesn’t appear to be much more than a long dirt road connecting to Indian Valley. The first 6.0 miles of this trail are uniquely different from the last 5.0 miles in regard to terrain, vegetation, and even wildlife. Steep mountain walls, mountain peaks, beautiful valleys and streams, mature Sitka spruce forest, and areas rich in wildlife provide plenty of enjoyment along the way. The trail is generally wide and uphill until it reaches the pass and then becomes very steep as it heads down to Indian. This year-round multiuse trail provides access to other trails in the Hillside Trail System.
