Trail Overview

Mill Canyon is unique in its quick change from low, rolling foothills, to a quick push of a more tree-dense forest road. During the dry seasons, most high-clearance AWD vehicles should be able to complete the route without issue. However, during wet weather or snow, 4x4 and 4WD vehicles will handle the deeper rutting, off-camber sections, and steeper grades much better. There are some larger loose rocks up to 12 inches in size and a few low-lying washes that have the potential to be shallow water crossings after rain or snow melt. The trail starts wide enough for one vehicle with room to pass but becomes more narrow and eventually turns to a single-vehicle shelf road towards the end on a steeper grade. Cell service is extremely weak in the area. This is an out-and-back trail that has a couple of motorized spurs, but drivers should be aware of the private land in the area and be sure to stay on the main forest roads.

Difficulty

Drivers will encounter larger loose rocks just under 12 inches in size, several off-camber sections with some deeper rutting, and a few slightly steeper grades. Several areas are single-vehicle-wide with little to no room to pass. There are also several low-lying washes that have the potential to be shallow water crossings after rain or snowmelt.
