Weave along the clear turquoise water of Indian River as the trail takes you into the Indian River Valley, with views of the Three Sisters Mountains from the muskeg area and salmon in late summer and early fall. You’ll cross over log bridges and be surrounded by mossy forests and towering trees as the trail curves along the river. Relax near the water's edge and enjoy the calming natural surroundings. Level of difficulty: Easy. The hiking time is about 1.5 hours. Though the trail itself is not particularly difficult, it is a long enough distance that participants will need to be able to walk at a moderate pace for over an hour.
