Description

Mill Creek Loop Trail rolls through mature hardwoods and begins/ends on the Loyston Loop. Expect extended gentle climbs and long descents.

Navigating Mill Creek Loop Trail is simple. This is one continuous trail with no side trails; however, you'll cross an old grass road three times. Head north (uphill) on the grass road for a shorter bail out if needed. This trail features a relatively wide path with gentle rolling hills and is appropriate for fit beginners as well as seasoned hiking vets.

There are views of Norris Lake on both sides of the peninsula.
