There are actually two trails here. One is a wide chat trail out and back to the mill. It is 1/4 mile in length and starts at a kiosk in the parking lot next to the cemetery. Half way to the mill the trailhead for Mill View Trail may be found off the left side of the trail and at the north end of the lake.

Mill View Trail is a 1.5 mile loop trail that crosses the creek (you will get your feet wet) and ascends to an overlook of the dam and mill. After that the trail continues ascending up to a bluff overlook of Huzzah Creek before entering forest. There are several tall pines along the trail. In addition to the nice views, highlights of this trail were at least a dozen different species of fungi and a baby Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher on the ground just off the trail.
