A gently ascending trail leads along the upper section of Mill Creek to a ridgeline at the top of the canyon. Enjoy the overview at the saddle or continue up to Murdock Peak for the view from the summit. Well known and well used by locals, Mill Creek canyon offers wonderful year-round recreational opportunities for hikers, dog owners, road and mountain bikers, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers. Even the farthest reaches of the canyon can get busy on summer weekends. The Upper Big Water trailhead is such a place, with a large parking area that often fills to capacity. But once you get on this trail, the wooded creeksides and the rolling hillsides make the upper canyon a place of serenity.
