      The Elk Creek Trail 550 trailhead is located in the upper parking area of the Mill Pond Historic Site. From the parking area this trail crosses the Sullivan Lake Road and climbs up a south-facing slope offering stunning views of Mill Pond and Sullivan Lake. The trail drops into a steep draw where Elk Creek Falls cascades down the hillside for 30 feet. After viewing the falls, the trail winds down the hillside where it again crosses the Sullivan Lake Road and returns to the trailhead.

      The Mill Pond is also known as a gold panning prospect. It will eventually be drained to allow cooler water to sustain the native fish populations of the creek. Camping is available on the east end of the pond.
