Mill Creek Professional Reviews and Guides

"Moab got its name from the Bible. In the Bible, Moab is a promised land near the Jordan River that is a lush oasis in the middle of an arid and vast desert. This hike is all that and more. A sparkling stream lined with lush vegetation and framed with red rocks is a perfect haven from the scorching sun. Ancient rock art is a bonus feature. Busy with dogs, hikers, and bathing beauties, this is an easy, tail-wagging trail! Don’t expect privacy—expect fun!"

"Enjoy views of a spectacular cliff-lined canyon on this easy hike along a perennial creek. The Mill Creek Trail follows Mill Creek, a perennial stream that begins high in the La Sal Mountains, through a deep sandstone canyon east of Moab. The described easy hike follows the trail for 0.7 mile to the fork between Mill Creek and the North Fork of Mill Creek.

Watch the weather and get out of the canyon during thunderstorms. Mill Creek drains a large area and any heavy rain upstream can cause flooding. In the event of flooding, climb to higher ground. Also avoid poison ivy.The hike ends below a couple of popular swimming holes."
