This popular Nordic trail system offers rolling terrain with a few short, steep pitches. The trails proceed through intermittent stands of fir and ponderosa; some stretches are open, others are heavily timbered. The trails lie on a wildlife winter range area which improves your chances of spotting deer or other wildlife along the way.

The trails are groomed weekly and the parking lot is maintained by Pend Oreille County. The trail system offers the opportunity to diagonal or skate ski. These trails were newly constructed/reconstructed in 1992-93. The modern design of the trails allows for varied terrain, a skating lane, and a double set of tracks.

Directions: From Newport, Proceed east through Old Town and across the bridge over the Pend Oreille River on US Hwy. 2. Turn north on the road immediately following the bridge. You are now on LeClerk County Road #9305. Follow LeClerk for about 7.5 miles until it intersects with Indian Creek Road. Turn east onto Indian Creek and follow it for 1.5 miles. You will see a large parking area. The trailhead will be on your left.
