From Utah 165, Millville Canyon Trail heads through the settlement of Millville toward the Millville Wildlife Management Area and the much larger Wasatch-Cache National Forest. From the game control fence at the 1.9-mile mark to the first cattle guard about a mile later, the road becomes quite rough with a large amount of imbedded rock. Special Attractions: Remote crossing of the Bear River Range through the dense Wasatch-Cache National Forest; Natural overlooks providing broad panoramic views; Numerous backcountry campsites. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
