Description

To get to Mill Creek RD, head out of town on HW 145 until you are just west of the gas station. Turn north onto the dirt road and head continue until you reach your trail of choice.

This uphill follows the paved road out of town and then is a consistent climb on loose gravel and dirt. Mill Creek Road ends at a closed water treatment plant, but this gives access to Eider Creek trail, The Deep Creek Waterline, and Deep Creek Trail. There is limited parking near the water treatment plant for those who wish to do some sort of shuttle, but riding the road is a good warm-up for the climbs that follow.

This road is shared by hikers, bikers, and cars, so be respectful.
