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.
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.
