Perfect trail to take the kids out

This trail was a nice surprise. We brought our parents here for an easy hike and they loved it! If you follow the map, it adds mileage and some elevation. We parked at the first parking area and walked down the road to the bottom parking lot. This was a mistake. Follow the map along the trail the whole way and it’s a great hike. We did on the way back and it was a bit of a work out. Don’t follow the sign to Millard Canyon, that just leads to the lower parking lot. The waterfall was flowing a little and there’s a lot of shade. We encountered a few mountain bikers, and they were great about sharing the trail.

The map for this is incorrect. The map shows the trailhead way up on what is a paved road. Follow the road to the bottom to get to the parking lot for Millard Canyon Falls Trail . It comes in at 1.66 miles
RT, so a really short and easy hike.
Went in late Nov and there was still some water trickling down the fall. Overall a nice outing, but I was wishing for more mileage .
