Indian Pass Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The trail leading to Indian Pass is, in its own right, an enjoyable excursion, and you can’t help but feel the remoteness of the High Peaks Wilderness that surrounds you. The first three quarters of the trail is, however, not that different than many deep-woods hikes.
It’s the last 0.8 miles that really sets this trail apart and makes it a must-have adventure. After navigating your way through a maze of enormous boulders, you soon reach Summit Rock, and the spectacle of Wallface Mountain is truly impressive."
