Description

There are different possibilities for starting this trail. Going east to west: 1) You can take the west end of the Jud Weibe Trail and head from Cornet Creek to Butcher Creek and then take the Waterline Trail to Mill Creek. 2) Start at the water treatment plant. Take Mill Creek Road, outside of town by the Brown Homestead, across from the gas station to Mill Creek where you'll be able to continue on this trail. 3) You can also work your way out to this trail from town by heading down the bike path to Mill Creek Road, taking the second Deep Creek Trail, just before the water treatment plant.

Be mindful of cyclists, as this trail is open to both runners and bikers. The trail has a mix of both great uphill, traversing, and downhill terrain. There are a few different forks on this trail, but the signage is very clear as to where to go.
