Description

Lower Indian Creek Trail (021) begins off of FR 104 on a triangular hillside between two drainages. Follow the sandy track down for half-a-mile to a stream-bed crossing near Indian Creek. This steady descent is the steepest of the entire ride.

As you follow along the banks of Indian Creek, it soon begins to curve tightly back and fourth through the vegetation that fills the bottom of the canyon. The result is a delightful creek-side scene beneath dappled shade. As you enjoy the sights, notice that the slope of Shay Mountain is much dryer than the opposite slope to your right.

Around four miles, the lush vegetation gives way to clumps of sagebrush as the trail heads toward the Manti-La Sal National Forest boundary. The ride continues through BLM land along a road until it reaches State Route 211 near Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument.
