Indian Spring Loop Trail

Indian Spring Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"After watering and leashing your dog, from the kiosk head south. In this Mexican gray wolf recovery country, bears also abound, so follow the leash rules for your dog’s safety. Pack in additional water in case the springs are dry, and purify what you take if water is flowing.

On Indian Spring Trail 627 you and your dog first trek through a lovely meadow lined with firs and ponderosa pines; soon, you are under their broad canopies and enjoying the wide path and shade. This hiking-and biking-only loop trail swells and dips, giving you and Fido an easy but very pleasant and generally shady and cool workout. If you want a more remote experience, avoid weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when this trail occasionally sees heavy use."

"The Indian Spring Trail loops through the highlands adjacent to Big Lake, a recreational lake to the northwest. Once beautifully forested, this region was adversely affected by the 538,000-acre Wallow Fire in 2011. Some pockets of unburned timber remain, but much of the Indian Spring Trail was burned over. Nevertheless, the hike is still a pleasure. Scenery abounds, a pair of springs await hikers, and forest succession has already begun."
