       A marking at the trailhead would be helpful. As far as I can tell, this trail does not exist.

       This trail absolutely exists! Start at the Mill Creek entrance westbound off 78 Ave and hang a quick right into the first single track, about 15 meters from the start of the gravel path. Stay right at each fork. This is an excellent start to the Mill Creek trails and worth taking time to find it.

       One caution- the trail section just prior to the 82 Ave bridge has eroded into Mill Creek. Avoid that section!
