This is a nice canyon road with almost zero traffic in the back of Mission Peak Regional Park.

Description

Mill Creek Road is probably the most beautiful canyon road in the Fremont area. This is a very well-known route for our friends with the road bikes. For mountain bikers, this route is much easier than climbing on Peak Trail in the Mission Peak area. There are two cattle gates that open back to Mission Peak but it's only accessible by rangers.

Climbing up Mill Creek Road is always a very enjoyable ride. It is shaded almost all the way. The scenery along the way is beautiful and very peaceful. The road is narrow. Cars are limited to 10MPH. Usually, there is very little traffic to none at all. However, on the weekend there's always some people, driving up/down looking for scenery or access into Mission Peak area. Do watch for cars in either direction.

This is the best part of the trail through the trees. Note that there is no way to get to Mill Creek Road even though it is 50 feet away. It is fenced and the 2 points where there are locked gates do not have bike or pedestrian gates.
