Begin at the Indian Creek Warming Hut and follow the Indian Creek Loop for the first mile. Continue west, making a loop through rolling terrain with outstanding views of the Gallatin Mountains, Gardners Hole, and the surrounding country. After completing the loop, return to the Indian Creek Warming Hut by the same route.
