NileGuide Expert tip:
The top half of Millcreek Canyon closes during the cold half of the year.
Situated on the eastern side of the Salt Lake Valley (where 3800 South Street meets the Wasatch Mountains
), Mill Creek Canyon is a popular recreation area. Shared by bikers and hikers alike, Millcreek is fairly unique in the Salt Lake area as a dog-friendly zone. (Numerous canyons are off-limits to dogs in the interest of preserving drinking water sources.)
The area is managed by the US Forest Service and provides a large system of well-maintained hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails. Mill Creek Canyon also has about 10 picnic areas.
The fee is $3 day-use fee for vehicles entering the canyon; is no fee for cyclists without a vehicle.
