Site Description and Birding Information: Indian Creek Road passes through a further good variety of habitat on its way to the barricade above Indian Creek, from the Pineview Picnic Area and the JGL Logging Road. An Olive-sided Flycatcher spent at least a week in early June 2008 around the pond at the junction of Indian Creek and JGL Logging Roads. Not far from the barracade is the ATV trail, which traverses the northern section of the forest. And almost at the barracade is another inviting looking trail (see photo below).
Trail off the North End of Indian Creek Road
If you go beyond the barracade on foot, you can descend to the bridge across South Indian Creek. The creek and the woodlands beside it are good for birding. Mourning Warbler is a breeding bird here, and can be seen from the road near the bridge.
