Description

Millstone Lake loop is accessed via the R2R trail. The East Trigg trailhead on Trigg Tower Rd has a designated parking area with ample parking. Jackson Falls is also has parking. Both allow access to the R2R trail but make for a bit of a trek to reach Millstone lake. There is space along the road to the damn though. Just be aware that most of the land on either side of the road is private property leading down to the dam. You'll encounter some good ruts in the beginning and if it has rained recently it can be pretty muddy. Some rocky sections throughout but This loop is very runnable. Overall it is fairly flat with some very solid, clean, fast sections. Beware, this trail is a bit hard to follow, just like the others in the area. It does have white blazings like the others, but they are sparse, there are also ribbon blazings and spots where the terrain is rough and the trail seems to disappear. It is a fairly remote location and so demands a certain level of experience and respect. Please remember some people prefer this kind of experience.
