Don’t use google maps to get you there because it won’t lead you to the correct spot. You will need to drive through a creek with a high clearance 4x4. Besides that it is a great hike worth any amount of hassle to get there. Do yourself a favor and hike the entire trail to the peak. The view will pay you back.

There is a loop trail once you get to the lake that climbs up past Little Miller Lake full of lily pads and to the summit for a peek at Shasta and a good view of Grayback Mountain. Nice wildflowers even mid-July and minimal bugs.
The road with the stream crossing about 3 miles before the trailhead is very narrow and steep in and out of the stream. We were in a high clearance truck with skid plates and needed the skid plates plus 4 wheel drive. Wouldn't have wanted to cross it with any more water running.

Awesome lake, looks like there's some great fishing possible. Small bank but the water is clear and cool. No cell service. The road is treacherous currently, need a truck or SUV to traverse it. There are two washed out spots on Road 1020 that have been covered with dirt so you can drive over the top but you need a high clearance 4x4. The creek is about 2 feet deep currently, it definitely was fun but challenging. I drive a 2005 GMC Yukon and it did great! Safe travels!

I love this hike. But it should be noted that you need high clearance vehicle to cross the stream and should not be attentive during high water. In June the wild flower display is remarkable.

Had a great time on this trail with my daughter and our dogs. The trail around the Miller Lake is approx 2 miles,. As you climb up to the ridge you will find a smaller lake, and as you reach the top you will be able to see Mt Shasta on one side and Mt McLoughlin on the other side.
