Description

Starting at the Hallowell Park trailhead, this trail climbs westward into the park along Mill Creek before descending to the Moraine Park Cub Lake Trail.

From the trailhead, start out on the trail along the edge of the marshy area. Keep an eye out for moose as they frequent such environments. The trail then turns to the south and begin contouring up the eastern and then southern flanks of Sheep Mountain.

As the trail begins trending more to the west and northwest, look for another trail to branch off to the southwest. This is the Mill Creek Cutoff trail which leads to the Bear Lake - Mill Creek Trail - a trail that links the Mill Creek area to Bear Lake. Shortly after the first junction, you'll pass another junction for the same trail as it loops back to Mill Creek Trail.

Mill Creek then turns generally to the north and begins following an intermittent stream up to a saddle between Mt. Wuh and Sheep Mountain. After cresting the saddle, the trail descends steeply to meet the Moraine Park Cub Lake Trail at Cub Lake.
