Trail Overview

Old Mill Creek Road is great for someone just getting into off-roading. Most, if not all, of this route is safe and easy enough for high clearance 2WD, however, there are one to two muddy/rocky areas that could benefit from 4WD depending on the amount of rain the area has received and how muddy it is. This is a very relaxing and scenic route that takes you through a heavily-wooded area and crosses over Mill Creek several times over 5 miles. If you happen to make this trek during the hot summer months and approach from the east, a small swimming hole will reward you at the end of the drive! Late Fall, Winter, and early Spring will produce a more wet/muddy terrain, and also provide a better view of Mill Creek and the surroundings.

nice easy ride only a few technical areas where you'll probably need a spotter. After the main water crossing there is some good size rocks and ruts.

Ran Old Mill Creek Rd from Bates Crossing Rd to Hwy 48 (East to West). Road has been washed out in some spots and the roughest spot was the rocky descent. It’s an ascent if going the opposite way. Truck has little issues but there was spots with atleast 12-18” of drop from the rocks. Spotter recommended for that area. It had just rained here so the water crossings were probably 12” deep. Loose rocks in the creek beds. Super fun quick trail for beginners!

A couple climbs/descents with moderate rocks/ledges and somewhat eroded. Probably not an issue for any stock 4x4. Probably not a a good idea in a crossover. Pretty dry considering the heavy rain two days prior.

Access Description

Doable from either direction, but the best approach is from the east. The eastern approach results in a downhill decent for the rocky area, much easier for the beginner in my opinion.
