Description

This run starts atop right near the Mills Peak Fire Lookout. The trail begins by heading south, but soon doubles back and zigzags across the ridge in a general northern direction. The trail descends down a fairly consistent moderate grade. There are a few switchbacks along the trail that help to ease the grade.

Just about four miles in, the trail ends at an old 4x4 jeep track. You can take this north to reach Middle Mills Peak Trail
