Visited with our dogs, hoping for a respite from city traffic and buildings. It's a nice canyon, has a narrow and curving road. There were many bicyclists and the road is quite narrow. It made me nervous for their safety as most drivers seemed to be in a big hurry to get to their destination. There are lots and lots... More

Great canyon that is over crowded during the weekends. You'll end up walking a long ways to picnic areas unless you're one of the first cars up the canyon. Great trails, again parking is limited. Really distracts from experience. Odd days mountsin bikes are allowed on trails and they have the right of way. Even days dogs off leash. It... More

Had an afternoon picnic today. Very pretty unless you look on the ground. Litter EVERYWHERE! Why pay for a entrance fee (in which the annual national parks pass apparently isn't honored??) when there aren't any garbage services? No garbage cans = litter, obviously. Won't be coming up here again any time soon...

This is one of the reasons I love Utah. The canyons here are beautiful and so close to the city that you can go for the day and get back without much trouble. Mill Creek canyon is beautiful and peaceful. Spring and summer are my favorite times to go. Love it here.

Millcreek is a favorite for hiking, biking, walking, snowshoeing and picnicking for families and couples. $3 dollar fee when you leave the canyon, dogs on leashes only, days restricted.

I went snowshoeing a few times with various people, and have loved it! It was fun and challenging with absolutely gorgeous scenery. Even one day when there were a lot of people up there it is vast enough that it didn't feel crowded. Definitely a favorite place and will keep going back. It is so quick and easy to access... More

I love this canyon! Great place to escape into the mountains with a relatively short drive. I take my dogs up here through out the year and we always have a great time. They are allowed off leash on odd days.Keep in mind if you do bring your pets to pick up after them and some trails like Porter Fork... More

This is my favorite canyon along the Wasatch Front. I basically grew up in this canyon. Great for biking, hiking, nature walks, picnics, dining at Log Haven which is also very popular for weddings. Can be quite busy with people and dogs. The mountain bike trails are too busy on the weekends, I avoid them. During the week it is... More

Some times it can be a little crowded. Especially in the summer. In the winter, when there is snow it is a great place to ski. At least until the inconsiderate dog owners let their dogs dump everywhere. So, down at the bottom of the road you need to be careful. It is truly a shame that so many dog... More
