Indian Valley

Indian Valley Professional Review and Guide

"Indian Valley offers a good family hike along Indian Creek through a delightful combination of forests and meadows to alpine tundra and tiny lakes high in the mountains. In the early 1900s, dog mushers drove their dog teams from Indian to Ship Creek.

They crossed over Indian Creek Pass, a part of the Iditarod Trail system between Seward and Interior goldfields. The route over Indian Pass was used alternately with the route over Crow Pass. The Indian Creek section of the trail has been cleared and is generally easy to find; the Ship Creek section is brushy, often boggy, and difficult to find. The traverse is most often done in winter by strong crosscountry skiers."
