Need to Know

When Indian Creek Trail floods or becomes muddy and difficult to follow, this is the alternate route to get to and from the boardwalk section of the trail.

Description

Indian Creek Alternate Route follows Indian Creek, but this trail picks its way along the dolomite cliffs and outcrops overlooking it. There are some interesting views from the cliffs, but the trail here is not the most well-marked or the easiest.
