We hiked the pipeline trail (starting at Church Fork -- which is a GREAT picnic area in and of itself) in Mill Creek with our six children (ages 4 - 14) and really loved it. Aside from a brief uphill climb at the start of the hike the trail was fairly flat. There was shade on occasion and regular, lovely... More

I initially thought Millcreek would be the perfect place to take my dogs on hikes knowing there are designated on-leash days and being so close to home, however I was wrong. Being an extremely responsible dog owner of a controversial breed I make it a point to only take my dogs (Pit Bulls) on the on-leash days. My dogs both... More

My friend and I decided to go for a drive and ended up at the Mill Creek Canyon. I love the tranquility and the scenery. There are so many trails and picnic areas along the main drive. There is a restaurant called the Log Haven, but only opens for dinner I think... I went there during one winter but I... More

Nice drive, nice hikes, dog lake is cool, the restaurant 1/2 way up is amazing...I can't recall the name right now, it's $$$. Mill Creek is a perfect few hours trip to bring visitors to or if you are itching to get out of the house. I have been to a few weddings up there as well and it seems... More

It is just such a lovely little canyon - so peaceful and beautiful. It is a perfect place to sit quiet and enjoy what the world has to share.

Good trails are accessible in Mill Creek Canyon in a 20 min. drive from most places in the Salt Lake Valley, I15 and east. With this proximity, you can get in an after-work hour hike and still make it home for dinner. It is open to dogs, and its proximity means you may not be alone on the trails. However,... More

I have been there many times. It is really very nice place for picnic, hiking and biking. We drove all the way up to the canyon. The view is really wonderful up there. The best seasons to be there are in fall and spring to enjoy the view with colorful trees all way up to the canyon.it is about 2o... More

The drive through the canyon is fantastic, but, even better, there are a number of trailheads along the route that take you to some real nice hiking.

My favorite time to visit this canyon is the first and second week of October. The fall foliage is SO lovely. It only takes a short 1/2 hour by car to drive the canyon round trip. There are lots of picnic areas to stop along the way to have a nice picnic. Lock your valuables in your car if you... More

This canyon is located very near the city on the east side. It's filled with picnic areas, cub scout camp sites, hiking trails and at least one restaurant. It's a well used and much loved canyon by the residents of the city. There is a fee to enter. It's a beautiful spot with lots of trees and a lovely stream... More
