Just finished this hike. If your looking for a way out of the inversion soup, this is a great little hike to get above it. The trail is hard pack snow, making it a really nice, smooth hike. It’s actually a more comfortable hike than in summer in my opinion. With micro spikes and poles you’ll have zero problems on this trail. Beautiful, sunny warm skies up there above the smog. It’s well worth it!!

Lots of switchback at the beginning. Gradual climb to Elephant Rock. Trail well packed from heavy used. Didn't need to use snowshoes or chains. Didn't go all the way down do the cave because the snow was so deep

Great hike! Bring those spikes!

Just got down. Only spikes used, some areas I wish I had poles but overall doable without, at this time. Thanks to the postholers, everything is mostly compact. Great hike.

awesome hike, very few people and amazing scenery.

Beautiful hike this morning. Only used spikes. Did some post holing about the last half mile.

Great hike, great views. I would say its even better to do this hike in the winter on a nice day...just really beautiful from top to bottom with the snow. Microspikes are the way to go. If you're not running up or down the trail I would say you could knock this out 2/1/2 - 3 hrs of actual hiking time if you're in moderate shape. If you do run down it takes about 35-45 mins with some stretches of walking.

Trail is packed snow most of the time, wet dirt in many spots. Spikes are very helpful, especially at the steep parts near the top. Snowshoes would be overkill. It was a nice clear day which made for incredible views!

BEAUTIFUL VIEW

This is a response to Wolfie Perry: there are better spots to access the Pipeline further up the canyon. Rattlesnake is probably the worst place to access it, definitely a steep slog. I made a similar mistake hiking with a three year old on my back.

Hiked it this am. Had to park on the road since we started early (5:30am) and the gate was closed. It was cool in the predawn, but it warmed a bit as we left the creek and then again as the sun rose as we approached the summit at 6:30. Including a break at the summit to enjoy the view it was still under 2 hours round trip. A little steep in spots, but nothing technical or challenging. Under 90 minutes would've been possible if we'd run down.

Definitely recommend the hike. Had been 20+ years since I hiked it last but the rattle of the Aspen leaves and the smell of brush and wild flowers was very nostalgic. The view in every direction was fantastic.

A nice trail with great views but waaay too busy. The trail is packed all the way so I really did not need the snowshoes.

Quarry trail parking was covered in packed down snow. Parking across the street was clear. About 3” of snow on the start of the trail, probably 4-6 at the top. You may still be okay without spikes, but I would’ve been faster if I had them with me. Great option for a regular winter hike.

Fun little climb !

I followed the tracks of another kind soul who did the majority of the post-holing up to the summit.

Great views of Kesler to the South.

My boyfriend and I did this hike and loved the views along the way. It’s a moderate hike with multiple trails labeled as “Thor’s Hideout” that weave and cross paths throughout the hike that can add to the experience. The trail head is labeled “Red Hollow”.

Beautiful hike. Steep at the beginning and the end but the midsection is mild. Views at the end were great. Trail is icy in spots so make sure you have proper footwear and/or poles. Trail was a little busier than I would have liked but worth it regardless. There is a $3 fee to access the canyon and dogs have to be leashed on even days.

A great running spot. Easy access, not too hard, reward with a good view in the end.

There is some trail erosion. Can be crowded over the weekend.

Such a beautiful hike! The leaves were just turning colors and there was a lot of shade.

Perfect low elevation hike while the weather permits. No snow on the trail nor at the top, which is why it was perfect for this time of year.

I hiked the upper portion for 1.7 miles until it comes back up to the road. Starts just below the ruins of the old Mill. Loved this trail. Very peaceful and a gradual climb to get your heart going a bit. I only saw three mountain bikers and five bikers on this trail. I think I will start at the bottom for a snow shoeing adventure this winter.

Clocked it at just over 3.6 miles, so it's a bit longer than the description claims. Cold and damp up there today with some light snow. Very easy to lose the trail especially towards the very top when you have to make that left turn, fallen leaves are obscuring some of the trail. Follow the app GPS to make sure you go up and to the left for the last stretch. There is a bit of leftover icy snow in the higher elevations on some stretches. I brought spikes since I know it's steep. Saw some fresh moose tracks in the path of the first meadow.

Fun trail, dog friendly. Took lots of pictures and it took us about 2 hours.

Good workout going up. Beautiful view at the top. The trailhead does not list the hike but start and follow signs to “mill B” trail. When you get up the mountain most of the way, there is a subtle fork in the trail, take the fork that goes south or left along the ridge.

amazing moderate hike with spectacular views of cliffs and narrows. The sculpted sandstone formations are breathtaking.

We stayed the night in Cedar City after visiting Bryce and Zion. This is the PERFECT hike to end the weekend before heading back to Vegas to fly out. This is a pretty easy hike. There are no markings but you can easily follow the trail. The water follows the trail most of the way so if it’s a fresh rain it may be pretty muddy. Fitbit said we did 4.93 in 3:49 with numerous stops.

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!

Great walk with the first snow.
