Start at the Elbow Fork trail-head and turn right just before just before the bridge where a trail sign indicating where the Lambs Canyon Trail and The Mount Aire Trail seperate. There is a locked winter gate that is only open from July 1 thru November 1

Steep all the way up, but shady and beautiful.

Nice enough section of trail. I'd say there are prettier trails elsewhere in Mill Creek though. Makes for 1/2 of a nice traverse over the pass and down Lambs Canyon.

Very nice trail for carrying baby in carrier and having dog off leash. Water most of the way, good shade, great views of gobblers knob-to-Mt Aire near the top

Super Great hike. The six year old did well, the four year old had to be carried. A pretty steep trail until you get to the ridge where you are in damp vegetation and battling flying bugs. With all that said, I loved it. Tremendous views from the top, well worth it.

Until July 1 you will have to walk up the road a mile or so to Elbow Fork to get on the trail. Watch out for bikes coming down. Hiked June 22, 2016 and the wildflowers are great near the pass. Fairly easy hike although it is uphill all the way up so not much flat walking. Beautiful forest along the way and nice views of the Salt Lake Valley from near the top of the pass. Lots of flies out this time of year so bring bug spray. Great Flowers, not many people and pretty views from the top. My InReach had us going 6.3 miles from the parking area up to the pass and then back.

Started at Lambs Canyon and hiked from there to Lambs Canyon Pass then down this trail to Elbow Fork Trailhead. There are views of Millcreek Canyon and a great close view of Mount Aire from the trail. The trail is quite good and the wild flowers are beginning to add color to the trail
