Indian Creek Loop, just a little ways southwest of Sedalia, Colorado, features solid singletrack riding and is far enough from town to keep some of the crowds away.
What Makes It Great
It is recommended to ride the trail counter clockwise for the best downhill oriented experience, and I’ve found this to be true. Either way, however, you’ll get all the best that Colorado mountain biking has to offer.
From Forest Service fire roads to double and single track, water crossings, and plenty of terrain to get the heart pounding, this is Front Range riding at its best.
Staying on track here can be a little tricky, so do a little research and follow trail signs. The #800 trail starts behind the pit toilets and you’ll be climbing right away. Keep following this trail. You’ll see sections of Waterton Canyon and Bear Creek as you wind your way back toward the parking lot at Indian Creek Trailhead.
Who is Going to Love It
One of the greatest things about this ride is that it’s not just an out and back, and you can do enough miles to really feel like you got a workout.
