  • Mill Creek Canyon has something to offer no matter what season it is. In the winter, it's a great place to go snowshoeing, in the fall you can go for one of the many hikes and see the gorgeous leaves ...  more »

  • A great place to get away from the city. If you like Trees, Creeks, Things to climb, this is your place. A warning to new hikers; depending on where and which trail you take, it will be a challenge. Don't get me wrong, it is defitely worth the hike, but not highly recommended to people that want an easy walk through. You will have to walk at an incline. Also, to those who bring your dogs, please pic up their droppings. Don't just put it in a bag and toss it to the side of the trail. Us climbers especially don't want to find a surprise under our shoe after climbing things off trail. Be responsible and respectful of nature. You're not in the city anymore (Still, pick up after your dog). Other than the OCCASIONAL (You will hardly see them) doggy goody bags laying around, it is a beautiful place to just get away. I give this place 5 stars for sure. Definitely going back every Thursday. I've also posted a few pictures. Hope this review helps!
  • I have loved this canyon since I was a kid, but the last few times I was there it was filled with dog poop. There were piles everywhere!!! Even worse, there was bagged up poo all over too, including hanging from a tree. I'm a dog lover and have dogs of my own, so I'm happy they have a beautiful place to visit, but their people need to be MUCH better at cleaning up after their fur babies.
  • Haven't been their yet but love it any ways
  • Beautiful canyon in the winter. Porters fort was really fun to hike up then sled down
  • A beautiful, year around canyon that is wonderful for hiking, trail running, road running, trail biking, road biking, picnicking, camping, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, nordic skiing.... And, its dog friendly so you can take you loyal and faithful canine family member with you. Odd days are off leash for your dogs, so they really have a great time then. But, please make sure to pick up after your dog and don't leave the pooh bags on the side of the trail, please!
