    Indian Creek Loop Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Indian Creek is the southernmost of the Snake River Range’s major canyons. Its two forks provide a beautiful hiking area, although the view from the two trailheads may appear discouraging due to machine and cattle abuse.

    The South Fork Trail takes you from aspen and fir forest to a beautiful subalpine cirque basin that holds two ponds, rolling wildflower meadows, wildlife, and lots of room for cross-country exploration and access to other trails. The North Fork Trail follows a narrower canyon with spectacular rock walls, and several beautiful waterfalls and a big basin at its head."
