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.

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
