Indain Creek Lake Trail

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

The trail is mainly tight singletrack, with dirt and the main trail surface. There are sections of the trail, which are rocky, and there are roots and log crossing that are tricky when wet. This trail will be a must ride in Missouri when finished. I dont know how long the trail will be when finished but there is a lot of land that is in the park boundary that could be made into some of the most excellent singletrack in northern Missouri. Coodos--to Doug Long and crew--Keep up the good work.

Summary:
This is one of the best trails in Mo and nobody even knows about it. well marked & well maintained, truely a must ride, most excellant trail. Very similar to Council bluffs lake trail near potosi, mo as it circles indian creek lake and is constantly crossing drainages and streams and then ups & downs but this trail will be much longer and more difficult. Rocks, roots, logs, switchbacks, stream crossings, long extended climbs & decents, mostly in the trees with a few quick prarrie crossings. Mostly all single track. This trail is being built around the lake & is getting longer every year. Once completed this trail should become a destination mountain bike ride on the order of the berryman trail. This trail is not for beginners. Intermediate to expert riding conditions and extreme exertion required to do all the climbs. take plenty of water, its a long way to the end. allow at least 3 hours riding time to do the whole thing if u take a couple of breaks.

Recommended Route:
Start at the picnic shelter trail head which is at the east end of county road LIV510 which is off state hyway "U". LIV510 terminates at the lake & the picnic shelter parking lot is just before the end of the road.
the trailheads are at the north & south sides of the parking lot. there are restrooms in the parking lot.

The south trail is a quick 35-45 minute out & back through the woods, with a creek crossing & a steep decent & climb then crosses the dam then crosses the boat ramp parking lot then loops around the campground and returns, probably about 6 miles total. Ride this trail if u are in a hurry or as a warm up before doing the north trail.
The North trail is much longer & currently about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs riding time or about 12 miles out & back. ride this trail if u have the time its awesome riding. this trail is being built around the lake and this loop is longer everytime i ride it. when completed should be about a 18-22 mile loop.

Summary:
This is a great trail as previously stated. It is definately a challenge and not extremely technical. I like that there are not the extreme climbs that Colorado has. Great potential.

Summary:
i feel there should be ten stars because 5 does'nt do it justice there are several skilled trails that require hard climbs and fast downhuills but it also nice because there are also several smooth trail with cool up and downs and fun easy riding turns. my favorite part about this park is how the state really took the time to create a variety of trails for all skill level they also took the time to buildup birms omn the down so you can really fly through the turns.

Recommended Route:
indian trail is one of my favorite places to because of its diverse trail selection my favorite trail is, when you first enter the gate there is a trail on the left bout 1/2 mile it starts off nice and smooth with a slight climb that goes for about 3/4 mile its takes you pretty high but the degree of incline is so suddel you can't notice it then has a fast down hill with lot of sharp fast turns and long rythym selections

Other recommended trails in the same area:
my other personnel favorite place is castelwood
