At the time of our visit, there was a lot of roadwork, and road closures, so could not go very far. However, what we saw was beautiful. Would love to go back when road is fully open.

Mill Creek is one of the best places to hike in the Wasatch for so many reasons. First, there is a wide variety of hikes. You can do an 8+ mile loop through Gobbler's Knob during wildflower season or the short but iconic Salt Lake Overlook. There is something for everyone, and many hikes offer the chance to encounter moose... More

We drove through Mill Creek Canyon to a wonderful dinner at The Haven, which is an award winning restaurant with amazing food. Mill Creek Canyon is a great place for hiking and for picnics. There is an entrance charge. (Note: We were given a voucher to pay for this since we were dining). It is very close to Salt Lake... More

Millcreek Canyon is an excellent place to go it you don't have a lot of time and want to see Salt Lake City's incredible mountains. The drive is an easy, well maintained short trip to the top. Picnic tables and hikes are easily accessed, and the view amazing! Excellent restaurants are available in the canyon also.

This is a great canyon, one of my favorite trails is located here. Rattlesnake gulch trail. Its a little strenuous but well worth it. There are a lot of bikers and further up the canyon are plenty of other amazing trails and hikes. This is a great location for a sunday family outing. I absolutely love this and it's very... More

This is an awesome drive in the Fall. Leaves turning colors and some nice places to eat along the way. I lived in SLC for 35 years and would ride my motorcycle up this canyon in the Fall.

You pay when you come out the Canyon only, per car, but Scouts go for free, because of the Scout camps that are located there, and they will have a pass. A creek runs right next to the road and there are many trails you can choose from to climb, it is a very nice drive also, but watch for... More

Just a quick exit of 215 and 3900 south and you are there. Suddenly you are in the mountains. Have to pay to get in but it's reasonable. Find a table at one of many picnic spots, light a fire and enjoy chillin'

The trail head that leads to Dog lake is at the end top of Millcreek Canyon. There are two trails that make go to the lake. The hike is beautiful, crosses across the creek several times and has great views. The lake is nice but not nearly as nice as the hike itself. Dogs can be off leash on odd... More

I grew up in this canyon and love the trails. This fishing is great as well. They don't get too big but it is a fun place to go.
