Mill Creek

Mill Creek Professional Review and Guide

"If Mill Creek is not as well known as some of the other Bitterroot canyons, it’s not for lack of hiking opportunities. The falls on Mill Creek, for instance, make an excellent turnaround point for day hikers, and the connecting trail into Fred Burr drainage offers a very nice point-to-point hike entirely on the Montana side of the Bitterroots. Forest along the lower reaches of Mill Creek was badly burned in 2000, so you should expect to encounter frequent downed trees on the trail in its early miles.

From its forested beginnings, the trail retreats upstream and crosses several irrigation ditches before entering the canyon mouth. A log footbridge with handrail spans the watercourse just over .5 mile from the trailhead. Continuing west, the trail files through heavily burned forest set below soaring cliffs."
