A quick trail run loop in Mill Creek Canyon.

Brett Pinegar

Overview

A great trail run loop in Mill Creek Canyon. Take the Desolation Trail #19 up and the Thaynes Canyon trail back.
Features: Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The trail from the trail from the parking lot to the overlook is heavily traveled on weekends. Overlook to the where Desolution Trail connects to Thaynes Canyon is very runnable. Thaynes is quite rocky and the descent more rapid, making it more difficult to run.
