This hike is deceptive in the assumption that a lack of reviews from yelp would mean it'd be a quiet walk thru. Managed to see a handful of people and dogs along the way. First half is uphill on paved road, for some reason I had difficulty with this part and was put to shame by people three times my age briskly walking past me. 2nd half is more fun trotting down a narrow trail amongst lush vegetation and on and off shade. I continued onto to Millard Creek for about a mile until I got bored and turned back. Also took a stab at the short walk to Millard Falls. Overall it's a beautiful scenic hike with many points to look out as far as the eyes could see. But I'm not too fond of bumping into people along the way. Probably not coming back.

Moderate to steep single track climb into a back canyon- with options to follow the stream bed above the falls to Dawn Mine or continue along the main trail which can go up to Inspiration or traverse to Echo. Great trail if you only have a couple hours. Can start in the Millard parking lot or up above at the top of Chaney road.
