Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Need to Know

Dogs are allowed in Mill Creek with alternating on/off leash days – check with the Forest Service for recent policy/schedules. The Forest Service charges a nominal day fee for canyon recreation.

Description

The trail is accessed either via the Bowman Fork/Terrace Hills area (3.7 miles up from the Mill Creek entrance booth) or by walking up Porter Fork (3.4 miles up from the Mill Creek entrance booth) for a little over a quarter mile, then heading back north along the access road. Infrequent avalanches occur into some of the steeper gullies of the switchbacks.
