Description

Many people get no further than the Donut Falls Trail but by veering on Forest Road 019 about a quarter of a mile before Donut Falls one can go a long way up the Mill D South Fork. It is even possible to drop into Little Cottonwood Canyon over Cardiac Pass though I don't show this here because I don't have a GPS track for it.

Mill D South Fork is very green in the summer and smells great. Wildflowers and butterflies abound.

Flora & Fauna

Butterflies and nettles.
