Getting There

The Indian trail loosely traces the old Shoshoni Indian path used in ancient times to get out of Ogden Canyon and onto the salt lake plain. The trail is heavily forested and, even though you are close to Ogden, has a wilderness feel to it. The trail is well maintained and cool even in the summer. The Indian Trail is a moderate hike that ascends through lush evergreen forest and past interesting geology. It climbs steeply into Ogden Canyon, winds in and out of Warm Water Canyon, climbs to "Nevada Viewpoint" on the ridge between Warm Water Canyon and Cold Water Canyon, and then descends to into Cold Water Canyon near the Cold Water Canyon Trailhead. You can hike it out and back, or arrange a shuttle and hike from Trailhead to Trailhead.

Beautiful weather. Some spots are a little tricky near the first overlook because of the snow lingering, but still manageable.

A lot of ice on the trail making it difficult and dangerous in some spots. Would be much more enjoyable later in the year

Hiked about .5 miles past the viewpoint. there are a few snowslide spots, but they're easy to go over. Snow is pretty compacted in the canyon and good tread or yaktrax make the terrain easy to navigate. The start of the trail is pretty muddy.

Beautiful afternoon hike in fresh snow. I started at 22nd and turned around shortly before the overlook when I found an apparent snow slide.

A bit muddy about a mile in, then trail is packed snow, very fun with spikes! Weather was a bit windy today, but not cold, just gusty. Love this damn trail!

Indian is always a great trail. Half the run is in the shade so be sure to dress warm. Additionally, but sure to have the right shoes it was snowy and event icy at points.
