Description

The Indian Creek Trail is a wooded trail with several swampy/low areas where you may encounter some mud. There are also a few downed trees to detour around, and plenty of roots to keep you on your toes. The trail connects from the Shuttle Trail to the Deer Island Trail and serves as a connection to several other trails on the west side of Northwest River Park. This is the longest (2.25 mi) and most isolated trail at the park.

Flora & Fauna

Mosquitoes, frogs, turtles, squirrels, woodpeckers, and deer.

Trail is great after a couple of dry weeks, but definitely holds water. Runs alongside a small creek for much of the length. Often see deer and birds. 2.5mi — 1h 00m
