Runner Notes

Be ready for a climb. The grade is steep and there are some rocky sections.

Description

This trail is a seriously steep singletrack that serves as a challenging uphill to access the Deep Creek Trail #418. To access this trail, drive up Mill Creek Road until the first major pullout, at which point the trail branches north (uphill) off of the road. This is a tough but great way to access the Deep Creek Trail #418. It offers great views of Mt. Wilson and Lizard Head as well.

Flora & Fauna

Aspens, evergreens, and an assortment of wildflowers.
