This place was really good and it got cooler in the evening which we didn't expect. Spent around 3 hours here and we were greeted with some nice scenery. Everything is good except $3 fee. Though not a major concern but still only canyon which charge entry fee. Will definitely visit in winter.

Whether you want to hike or picnic there is something for everyone. We tried a hike with our little one but the brush and bugs were too thick for our comfort, so we opted to hang out by the cool river at a picnic area. There are so many trees, flowers and beautiful things to see. It does get very... More

Fun canyon to climb on a bicycle with some strep areas, but overall not too bad. Also offers beautiful hiking trails from beginner to advanced.

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.
