Pretty cool uncrowded backcountry trail. Only ran 3.5 miles out then back on the North Indian Creek section of the trail. Slightly over grown but no big deal. Lots of cows for the first mile. 2 stream crossings so be prepared to get wet. Water was knee deep but easy to cross. Would recommend!

This loop heads up the North Fork of Indian Creek, follows through a few basins, and then comes back down the South Fork of Indian Creek. You'll encounter several stream crossings on this trail. Bring a pair of water shoes. In the early season, the snow runoff creates many waterfalls, particularly on the North Fork. The last portion of the trail on the South Fork is ATV accessible.
