Great hike. Plenty of trees and plenty of views. Some places had a lot of ice, spikes would have been nice. Good length! Beginning seemed harder, the rest was easy to moderate.
Dogs are good for off leash on odd days, like the rest of the canyon. :)

This is one of my favorite hikes in Millcreek. A bit harder and longer then the others. The view is amazing and a good hike to wear out the dogs.

It's a solid hike. 2 miles with a gain of about 1200ish feet. View is definitely worth it. A lot of people around
