“A short but sweet run to a Moab gem: Mill Creek Waterfall.”— Tom Robson
The waterfall area is prime jumping and swimming terrain. Bring water, some friends, a good book, and enjoy!
Follow the mostly obvious trail through the stands of cottonwood trees. Eventually, you'll reach the junction of North Fork Mill Creek and Mill Creek. Cross the creek here to follow the North Fork.
After running through smaller stands of trees you can either work your way to the pool below the waterfall, or head above the waterfall to continue on the trail (or jump into the lower pool from above). To do this, the trail heads left up a slickrock slab. Run carefully here and you'll find yourself atop the waterfall.
