This in-city hike is especially convenient for the folks in Antioch. It takes you around Antioch Middle School, the community center, and then along Mill Creek. Watch for birds and other wildlife near the creeks edge. The shallow, nearly pristine creek and woods bordering it provide good habitat for wildlife in this residential area.

This greenway is an urban classic, tucked away in a heavily developed area of Antioch adjacent to Interstate 24. It uses not only lands along the surprisingly pretty Mill Creek but also public property on the edge of Antioch Middle School and Antioch Community Center.

Mill Creek is doing its best to remain a beautiful stream. In fact, the water coloration is still bluish, and paddlers can be found plying Mill Creek in spring and early summer. You arrived here on Blue Hole Road, named for a deep spot in the creek that has an especially deep-blue cast. A canoe-manufacturing company, Blue Hole Canoe, was named after this stream.

This in-city hike is especially convenient for the folks in Antioch. It takes you around Antioch Middle School, the community center, and then along Mill Creek. The shallow, nearly pristine creek and woods bordering it provide good habitat for wildlife in this residential area. There are plans to lengthen the Mill Creek Greenway Trail by continuing it to Ezell Park and adding a loop to it. Contact the Antioch Parks and Recreation Department for more information.

A large map board at the trailhead lists various checkpoints along the trail. Several long benches are built into a fence on the outgoing right side of the trail, providing plenty of opportunities to kick back. Head south from the trailhead, away from the community center and toward Antioch Middle School.

Decent trail but overgrown at the start. Lots of spikey plants that will stick you. Bring a stick!
