Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

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

Drive 3.4 miles up beyond the Mill Creek entrance booth and look for the Porter Fork trailhead on the right. Tour a mile up to the last of the houses in Porter Fork. Touring beyond this elevation will subject the party to the runout zone of the West Porter avalanche path.
