The Mill Creek Jeep Trail #006 is a VERY rough and ROCKY jeep road that provides access to Mill Lake and the south end of the single track trail East Fork of Hayden Creek Trail #181 at Mill Lake. There is one stream crossing of Mill Creek where you can expect to get your feet wet early in the season when the water is high. The mountain views from the Mill Lake area are outstanding. There are some challenging climbs on the Jeep Trail which may be a short hike a bike for some people. This trail is a for an out and back ride up to Mill Lake also. Be prepared for lots of loose rock on the trail.

Access Info

The Mill Creek Jeep Trail #006 is accessed off the Mill Hayden Loop Road #010. It is a rough rocky road and a high clearance vehicle with good tires is recommended.
