I did counterclockwise with having a little detour to enjoy Stevens Creek Natural Trail. Indian Creek Trail has steep gradient and was challenging with almost no shade. But view from black mountain was great. There were not many shade through the loop except Stevens Creek Natural Trail. Recommend to hike in the morning and finish before noon if temperatures exceed 90F.

The trail was great but it was so poorly marked that my fellow hiker and I ended up going 4 miles in the wrong direction and it went from a short planned 3 mile hike to a total of 7 miles really quick! The nature and wildlife is a 10/10, beautiful stream that runs through the trail, a bonanza of butterflies and lizards but it's hard to enjoy it when you can get lost so easily! Not for beginning hikers at all. Definitely need to be an experienced hiker for this one.

Recommend going clockwise on loop to avoid doing 100% elevation all at once.

Done on a very hot day. Still love it. Although I admit I walked part of the climbing to Black Mountain (The Indian trail).
Very nice and great views. I'll defenatelty come back.

Varied and very nice bay leafs smell. Beautiful creek.

Good and relatively easy workout to reach black mountain. 5 miles round trip if you reach the black mountain and come back. 6 miles if you meander around at the top for some time. Doable in 2-2.5 hrs. Open trail, hence best if completed before noon in summers.
