Description

Mill Canyon #40 is a scenic and challenging route that ascends from the American River to the Ridge Trail #157.

Start by crossing a bridge and then following the creek along the bottom of Mill Canyon. Within the first mile, you'll pedal through a mix of forest types and see some of Northern Utah's red rock formations.

As the route ascends, it breaks away from the creek on its way to an intersection with Mud Springs. Continue straight and rejoin the creek for a easy section of pedaling.

The intersection with the Holman Ridge - Cabin Flat #172 trail marks the beginning of some steady and steep climbing through switchbacks to the Ridge Trail #157.

The landscape changes drastically towards the upper reaches of the trail as you travel through large stands of fir.

Good climbing trail from Mud Springs intersection (although the GPS points are wrong for that portion of the trail)
