Millcreek Canyon is home to some wonderful trails that can be accessed by foot or bike. Although the canyon offers many hiking trails, the main use of the trails seems to be for trail running. There is a toll per vehicle to enter the canyon, but this can definitely be worth it because this is one of the only canyons that allows dogs!
Going up the canyon just a few minutes away from the city makes this campground ideal. The fire pits are scattered between campsites and make each site just a little more secluded than your average campground. With plenty of trails that over look the city and sunsets, this has to be one of my favorite overnight short trips
We love Millcreek Canyon for camping, hiking, or even just going up for dinner at their day use spots. Pet friendly. One of our families favorite canyons. We take tubes and float in areas of the river. The kids play in the river. Just a fun time.
Beautiful, quite, clean.. lots of hiking trails and many spots to choose from!
You can backpack in and camp anywhere a 1/2 mile from any road like the other nearby canyons. Good trails to approach from are Church fork and Lambs Canyon Trailhead. Lambs Canyon is much more shaded and provides views down the canyon into Salt Lake Valley from the saddle.
There are numerous primitive campsites scattered along the ridges. Everytime we come here we also see moose and deer. Best time is definitely fall
Millcreek is a great escape from the city. All the camping is backcountry so you can pick any trail and just make sure that you are 1/2 mile off the road and at least 200 ft from developed ares and water.
