The Mill Creek Trail serves as a connector between Twin Lakes Recreation Area and the Brush Hollow Trail. Just south of Forest Road 138, the Mill Creek Trail leaves the Twin Lakes Trail and heads south. The trail passes through the Kane Experimental Forest and a pleasing variety of forest landscapes.
