The Mill Creek Trail rides well in either direction. Ridden east to west, the trail follows along the path of Mill Creek, and crosses the creek numerous times. The creek crossings can be challenging when water levels are high. Towards the western limits of the trail, the path shoots upward and ascends a series of switchbacks that are generally smooth, but steep and long.

The trail terminates at the Stony Run Jeep trail, where a quick right brings you to the parkway. A left will keep you on the jeep trail to the intersection with Torry Ridge Trail.
