Good place for kids & adults to explore. The trail is short & very easy to walk down. It's a long drive to the middle of nowhere but it's definitely worth the drive.

Why the address on W.Main and in Mountain View You are miles away. You need to go the Blanchard Caverns on RT 14. Take the road into the park and go straight pass sign for "Caverns" till you get to Mirror Lake Falls. You will need to park on the road so use caution. Down about 15 steps go the... More

The view from the boardwalk is limited. From the parking lot of the boardwalk, you can go down a lower trail that takes you straight to mill. This area is in the Blanchard Springs rec area, it is in ruins, not a working mill. Interesting to visit, beautiful site.

The Old Mill on Main Street has been closed for years. The only thing you can see there is the outside of the building. To see the Old Mitchell Mill that... More

Great place to take pictures or go fishing. There is a trail that starts at the handicap parking that allows you to get down to the mill to take some great creative pictures.

It's nice to see old mill ruins, you can get a view of it, but only from the boardwalk about 60' above the mill, I didn't see any way down to get a better view. Photos show what it looks like from above. Looks like judging from the stone work on the mill and the dam at Mirror lake that... More
