Allegheny National Forest - Mill Creek Trail Description

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. The last mile of trail follows an old railroad grade along Big Mill Creek. The trail is marked with gray diamonds, and is best suited to hiking, although it is open to mountain biking and cross-country skiing.

Parking and Trail Access

At Forest Road 138, there is roadside parking for just a few vehicles. The Mill Creek Trail is just a short walk south on the Twin Lakes Trail.

Use the Brush Hollow Trailhead (SR 948) to access the Mill Creek Trail on the southern end of the trail. The Mill Creek Trail is about 1000 feet north of the trailhead on the Brush Hollow Trail. There is trail information and an accessible restroom at the Brush Hollow Trailhead. This trailhead is plowed in the winter.

Allegheny National Forest - Mill Creek Trail Reviews

"Nestled next to the Clarion River in the middle of the Allegheny Forest, this Rail to Trail presents the viewer with an abundance of wildlife opportunities. While biking the trail last summer, I spotted Canadian Geese on the river, a Bald Eagle sailing overhead, white tail deer and some of the most beautiful forests I have ever seen."
