We absolutely love driving up Mill Creek Canyon in the fall to see all the beautiful fall colors. There are many areas to have a picnic as well as hiking trails along the way. Great way to spend a day.

Putting in the toll booth and closing it down at 10:00 PM is the best thing to ever happen for Millcreek Canyon and those of us that love it so much. Although there are lots of improved picnic spots it remains relatively quiet and peaceful,...More

Odd days are dog days. Dogs are allowed off leash! Parking can be an issue because this canyon is popular.
