“A scenic and challenging route from the American Fork River to the Ridge Trail #157.”— Leslie Kehmeier
Start by crossing a bridge and then following the creek along the bottom of Mill Canyon. Within the first mile, you'll hike through a mix of forest types and see some of Northern Utah's red rock formations.
As the route ascends, it breaks away from the creek on its way to an intersection with Mud Springs. Continue straight and rejoin the creek for a easy section.
The intersection with the Holman Ridge - Cabin Flat #172 trail marks the beginning of some steady and steep climbing through switchbacks to the Ridge Trail #157.
The landscape changes drastically towards the upper reaches of the trail as you travel through large stands of fir.
