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.
