Driving Directions



The Trail:

Indian Farm Creek is an awesome little canyon in the Deep Creek Range. This is a very remote area that is a couple hours from any real city. It is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. Indian Farm Creek has some amazing campsites and is a great place to set up base camp for exploring the Deep Creeks. There is a short but very scenic road that can be driven in most 4×4 vehicles or ATV’s. This is a very granite canyon. Huge granite is everywhere. Indian Farm Creek is the canyon with lots of granite beneath the large peaks on the far left in this panorama of the range.

Here is some of the terrain you can expect to see from the road in this canyon. You can’t tell in the photos but some of these walls are HUGE. This area kind of reminds me of City of Rocks in Idaho. I would imagine there are fun rock climbing routes to be found.

Here is one with my ATV to give you some scale of the rock.

This canyon is worth a visit from anyone who is in the area but I loved it for the several great camp areas. Here was ours.

Indian Farm Creek runs right through the camp and was very nice for washing off at the end of a dusty day.

There were many horny toads that were fun to catch.

This canyon makes for some awesome and unique hiking. You could hike all the way up to Toms Canyon if you wanted to. There are many interesting granite formations and fun rock scrambling. Here were a few cool things that I found. There are also pictographs in the canyon that I wasn’t able to locate. Ill be back for sure.

The Bottom Line

Difficulty is basically the length, duration and stress of the Trek. If the Trek is really long then it will receive a higher rating. If the Trek is short then it won't receive that high of a rating. However, difficulty rating also includes how tired we were at the end of the Trek.

Technicality is how strenuous the Trek is. If there is lots of bouldering or if there is bushwhacking involved then the rating will be higher. Technicality also includes if there are steep inclines or the need for ropes and other equipment.

Enjoyment is strictly how much fun we had doing the Trek. Regardless of how tired and exhausted we were, if we had a ton of fun doing the Trek then it will receive a higher rating.

I was skeptical of this location but I’m glad I looked at all of the pics. Neat place! I’m not sure what sandstone that is but that is a old sandstone layer.

Looks like a fun area just to explore and climb all over the rocks.
