“A beautiful, wooded singletrack loop.”— Kristen Arendt
The next 8 miles are all downhill. Continue north along the dirt road marked with the #800 trail sign for 3 fast miles. Once reaching a large power line tower, look for the singletrack to start back up to the east. An awesome mile long section of downhill now awaits.
Around 5.5 miles, you'll enter Roxborough State Park - please note that this portion of the Indian Creek Trail #800 may be labeled as Powerline Trail. This is the only trail in Roxborough State Park where bikes and equestrians are allowed.
Next you'll reach a crossing trail, turn left or north to continue along trail #800. The next section is made up of a wide singletrack. After reaching a meadow, the trail bends to the west with some more downhill with some roots and rocks so watch your footing.
Continue along Trail #800 passing a trail that turns to the right which heads to the dirt road of Waterton Canyon. After a few creek crossings and the loop's first steep and challenging climb, you'll reach the turning point in the loop. Here you climb back to the south staying on trail #800 (west leg).
At about mile 11, you have a short downhill to Bear Creek in which the trail follows back to your starting point at Indian Creek Trailhead.
