The Millar Ranch Road is a good way to connect the Sweetwater Reservoir trails to the Proctor Valley trails. The northwestern end from the Sweetwater region is a standard asphalt road that winds and climbs to the shoulder of the ridge. The street appears to dead-end; however it crosses into the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge area and becomes a dirt, truck road. There is a bike/pedestrian gate next to the main gate. The dirt road initially climbs and finally descends into the Proctor Valley. There are a few different trails and singletrack spurs on the southeastern end that allow the rider to divert off the Millar Ranch Road and explore the local wilderness.
