This a fun challenging trail. It’s not an out and back as stated. You can start at Cow Creek and ride all the way to 24S35. There are a couple creek crossings, and it can get steep in a couple spots. I wouldn’t take my girlfriend on this trail. If you’re not riding every weekend it will kick your butt.

Took my two little girls on this trail, four and two years old. They had a great time. We went to first creek which was about a mile in and had lunch. Headed back after that. Overall very family friendly to the first stream.

I was only able to do about half of this trail about two weeks ago, so I had to come back and knock the whole thing out. Day turned out to be about 80 when I got back to the trail head. This is still a pretty busy trail at the lower elevations, but I only saw one hiker after mile 6. Great trail and longer than it said it would be, my recording is over 15 miles and I didn't venture off trail. Two tiny creeks at top with barely enough volume to filter, so bring plenty of water if you are going to do the whole trail. i went through a gallon. no longer any snow like there was a couple weeks ago. After about 6 miles, you enter a beautiful pine forest with some giant pines and plenty of shade. This is not a very technical hike: no scrambling or narrow drop offs, so it isn't difficult besides distance and elevation gain. It is pretty much going up for the whole way. on IG as @picbynathan

I did this trail the day after Lightner Peak, which is very near to Mill Creek, so I'm judging it by that standard, and by that, it is a much better trail than Lightner Peak. There is a reason that this trail is more popular, but I'm writing this in partial regard to social distancing, so if that is your goal, then Lightner Peak is the better option. First, I didn't get to finish the whole 14 miles, so I will need to in the near future because this is a very beautiful trail. It is very green right now, plenty of wildflowers, and has a plethora of stream crossings (Mill Creek). It is also very scenic without a lot of views of roads, buildings, etc, which I really like. The elevation gain is definitely more moderate than Lightner Peak and seems to be a more gentle incline over a longer distance. Plenty of wildlife in the way of deer, birds, rabbits and a ton of squirrels and lizards. Overall a very beautiful trail! on IG as @picbynathan

Well maintained trail, beautiful, but past mile 7 snow is past knee deep as of 4/11/2020 and there’s some issues with mud at mile 6. Complete trail is 9 miles to the road.

Awesome!!! Past 2.7 mark is when it gets its hard rating ... after mile 5 the trail is pretty rutted out and less traveled... the incline is killer... I’ve never been so thankful for a switchback in my life lol

Kind of cool, and it's nice when it's not crowded, and very picturesque setting. The hot springs are very easy to access from the Hobo Campground just to the east. We mad the mistake of parking in a turnout (as directed by the map on my phone) and hiking down, which was pretty steep. The trail from the campground was fairly flat and very easy for the kids, dog, and myself to walk along.

It’s was amazing!! In fact it was hard(for me) but definitely worth it. When you start the tail is very well marked and look so beautiful when all of the sudden the is a gate! Oh no.... but don’t worry it opens from the left hand side and it continues to look amazing like if someone cuts the grass. The you come across the River that has to be crossed 4 times. It gets a little tricky but is doable the first to you have to cross on logs as well as the 4th one the 3th one is easier cuz its rocks. The trail does become a little thinner and the bushes are a little bit over grown, but nothing that a hat, long sleeve, pants and long socks can fix. Then you can start to see some ice around mile 5 or 6, by then be careful cuz it gets snowy about 4 inches high when the highest at about mile 7 to 8 We did see some caws with their babies and they did not look to happy to see us, so we went around from them. If you take dogs please keep the close to you or with a leash. We did get very scared by 3 dogs that we kind of far from their owners and see not to friendly Be safe and have fun!! Btw NO SIGNAL AT ALL See pictures Instagram @creativekarlafun
