Mill B South is a great little trail that leads to a small waterfall which forms a decent sized stream that follows the trail all the way down to the parking lot. I took my son with me on this adventure and I did not need to put him in the caring pack that we have, he loved walking the short distance to the bridge that crossed in front of the waterfall.

This trail is a paved trail but is slightly on the steep side in some areas I would like to say that it is wheelchair excusable but you might need a strong push.

There is a nice parking area and a sign on the side of the road indicating the trail head. I used my GPS on my phone and it took me about a mile short of the trail head, about 3 miles up big cotton wood canyon, but if you go about 4.4 miles up you cant miss it :)

There is also a bathroom in the parking lot! This is a great family hike. and if you want to travel further you can reach lake Blanche, i saw a lot a people going up further with boxes for fishing.

Hiked on 11/11. The snow melt is all but gone which makes for a clear hike. Great short hike especially with the limited daylight hours.

This was a great hike! It was a bit steep and muddy in places with some minor snow melt but definitely worth the climb. I missed the fall colors unfortunately but there was a certain beauty in all the rows of bare aspen trees still.

Follow along like the other commentators note. When you get to stopping point don't stop. Head on down to the viewpoint that you can see to the southwest. There's no clear trail, but the little bushwhacking is absolutely worth it to get to the end of the point!

A lot of reward for so little work! It's a pretty short hike but it can get fairly steep at times. Most of the yellow Aspen leaves have fallen off and cover the ground, add that to the recent rainfall and you get some slippery parts of the trail. Don't miss the last left turn which actually heads towards Circle All Peak! There's a log that makes it look like you shouldn't cross it, but you must! Not a whole lot of room on the peak, but there are a couple spots to sit and one to lay down on. Again, the views are really nice and you can clearly see Kessler Peak, Dromedary, O'Sullivan, and Twin Peaks. I'll definitely be trying this one in the winter!

Very nice trail to a point at the end of a ridge that puts you in the middle of the Big Cottonwood drainage. I presume it got the name Circle-All because the higher mountains circle all around you.
The lower reaches of the trail are the steepest section as you briefly climb high above the stream. Then the slope becomes more moderate as you climb through beautiful aspen groves. When you reach the ridgeline, step across a log onto a less worn path that follows the ridgeline out to the small rise at the end of the ridge.

This basically follows Big Cottonwood Creek for a short distance
