Trail shared by Shelley Lutz

A challenging and fun ascent to the Grand Targhee Trails.

Description

Mill Creek is a stiff uphill hike if you are coming from sea level. The tread has a few small rocky sections. However, navigate your way through Mill Creek to Colter's Escape heading to Peaked and the views of Grand Tetons are well worth the climb up Mill Creek. Of course, then you get to come down what you just ascended at the end. Just watch out for horses and bikes on this trail.
