Awesome trail. We parked just below the end of the road at the overspill parking. You can hop on to a connector for the big water trail. The big water trail is way less steep, but much longer than little water. We took little water down and it was hardly any switchbacks so much steeper and more slippery. But it was shorter and you can get crear views of the stream and water. Not too busy at all!

Very kid friendly as long you stay to the Mill B trail and don't turn right to the Lake Blanche trail. Multiple pools with calm water to let children explore. 5 year old hiked in and back on her own with no complaints.

Coming from the East Coast that is just about at sea level this moderate trail was particularly tiring for me. I went at 2pm on July 3rd and although there was a lot of vehicular traffic, hardly anybody was on this trail. I also ended up in the sun a lot which resulted in a sun burn. Steeper at the start, then gradual incline the rest of the way. Lovely views along the way and the one at the top, in my opinion, is beautiful. I spotted a few places where a tent could be set up for camping or you can backpack further and intersect another trail to keep going.

One of the best trails I’ve done in a long time - I made a loop peaking Patsey Marley, Mount Wolverine and Mount Tuscarora. I didn’t find Mount Millicent to be that appealing to do - I started out but had to descend a lot to get to the saddle and the rock scree was much steeper and strenuous. It felt like it would add a lot of extra time for not enough payoff. Much easier to just stay on the ridgeline and not make the extra side trek. No mosquitoes, gorgeous 360 degree views - what more could you ask for. The only downside was following crowds of hikers back down to complete the loop at the Brighton lakes.

I would absolutely recommend this Trail to anyone with a dog but I would not take the route that this app has indicated. I would recommend to start at the Capitol building where there is parking available if you need it but also a great view of the mountains and you can check out the Capitol building. I would then take the route on the east side of the Stream rather than the paved Road on the west. It eventually merges with the paved Road though. The start of the trail goes through a nice park with trees but the paved Road in general is very boring. I expected the view of the capitol to be at the end of the trail but was disappointed to discover it was brush and parking lot.

Great trail! We started just after 10a with two adults and three kids, ages 10, 8, and 5. First part was in the sun, but majority was in the shade. The overlook itself isn’t that great, but the hike was with a continuous moderate climb most of the way. Our five year old pooped out halfway on the way down and had to be shoulder carried.

Definitely a hard hike. Have a plenty of water and if you can start early. Breath taking views.

Reminds us of Kashyyk, home of the Wookiee. Beautiful, isolated.

Easy to follow trail but overgrown past the overlook, 5$ to come out of the canyon

Beautiful! Start early, it gets busy with mountain bikers and people.

Felt a lot better the second time! We left at 540 am. I wouldn’t have wanted to start any later! It was toasty once you get down to the exposed portion again.

The reviews saying this was a tough hike are getting this simple path mixed up with the Lake Blanche trail, which forks off about 1/4 mile up this trail. The Mill B South trail is actually a short and quick walk up a paved pathway (wouldn't really even call it a hike). Easy enough that my 18-month-old niece walked most of the way. Kind of busy today, but it is 4th of July weekend.

Made the summit today, “scrambling” is an incredibly generous word for what was actually rock climbing. I’d consider this trail from TH to saddle high hard, extra hard, it really needs a more accurate description than “hard”. I’ve done many hard hikes, this one was not for the faint of heart. Saddle to summit, only for experts! That climb can turn dangerous with one small slip! Overall though, it was a BEAUTIFUL hike and the view from the top was one of the best I’ve ever seen. Beautiful the entire way up! Challenging, I feel incredibly accomplished finishing this hike! For sure make to pack plenty of water! Also, “dog friendly”. Unless your dog is great on their feet and accustomed to hiking, leave them home. Otherwise tie your dog up at the saddle. My Malinois made it about half way up the scramble before I feared her slipping so she got tied up in some shade while I made the summit.

I had no idea this trail existed until someone told me about it. Nestled in a neighborhood in downtown Salt Lake City it's an easy gravel paved loop. There is a babbling brook running parallel next to it. I saw kids, and dogs getting into the water. There are three ways to enter the trail. One is through the church. This way there is a small area that merges with the Miller Trail, but actually belongs to the church. Public is able to use this section. Very serene piece of Zen on this short loop.

This was definitely a hard hike. Have plenty of water. Beautiful view is breathtaking.

So many options and trails that feed in from this trailhead area makes it very very popular. Cyclists, MTN bikers (odd days), dog owners, hikers, trail runners all use this, so it gets really busy at peak times. The road up and parking is very tight. If it’s super busy and you think you’re going to get lucky and get a parking spot at the top in the lot, you most likely won’t because there aren’t many. And turning around is a mess because people will wait in the lot for a spot to open and make it worse. So try looking for a place to park along the road on the way up and just get out and hike up. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and congestion. And get more of a workout! Win. As a trail runner, I love this trailhead because I can do a short or long run with all the connecting trails (Desolation Lake, Dog Lake, Wasatch Crest, Gobblers, etc) But it’s just crazy how busy it gets up there. The poor cyclists that have to deal with the busy traffic. Drive slow and watch for them! I came up today around 10am (which is July 3rd) and it was insane. I couldn’t believe it. But, it’s a holiday weekend so I should have known better as a local. Also with COVID-19, people are flocking to the mtns. I get it. But I will plan better and be up early for this one, not on weekends. With all that said, it’s a great place to recreate when it’s not as busy!

Nice shade and cool rocks at the top. Trail is steep at times but has a lot of flat sections to make up for it. Kids might poop out during last switchbacks.
