Indian Trail Ridge
Part of the Colorado Trail (High Country) system.
Indian Trail Ridge links the San Juan Mountains with the La Plata Mountain Range via the Colorado Trail. The trail can be completed as an out-and-back from Kennebec Pass TH to the Grindstone Trail, or you can finish with an optional loop through the Boulder Ridge Playground at the southern end of ridge. Views and vistas are beautiful and numerous on this high country trail! -Description courtesy of Earthline: the American West.
