Indian Springs Trail Description

The Indian Springs Trail is a wide, gravel path that loops through a portion of the Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests. Beginning in a meadow, the trail quickly enters a dense forest of pine and fir trees. Portions of the trail run on a former roadbed, while others use the Apache Railway Company's former Maverick Line, which hauled logs to a mill in McNary in the mid-20th century.

Unlike other trails in the Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests, the Indian Springs Trail is limited to mountain bikers and hikers only. The trail is a moderate challenge, as there are a few steep climbs along the way.

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead for the Indian Springs Trail is located southeast of Big Lake, on the south side of Forest Road 249E. Note that parking is limited to 5 or 6 cars.

Indian Springs Trail Reviews

Bike Carry not Ride !

Last year this was an awesome trail ride through beautiful country. My riding partner and I tried to ride this trail again on July 9th 2016 and the dead-fall trees made it a real chore. We conservatively estimated 100 trees across the trail in under a 7 mile distance. A real nightmare with all the fire-damaged trees.
