day hike elbow fork - millcreek canyon
This hike makes a good off the beaten path excursion. Starting at Terraces Picnic Area, the hike meanders up to a ridge that offers a few distant views of Baker Pass, Mount Raymond, and Gobblers Knob before re-entering the woods and meandering down to Elbow Fork. It is nice that you can make the hike into a 6 mile loop by returning on the pipeline trail. Millcreek Canyon is on the east side of the Salt Lake Valley, just south of I-80 and Parleys Canyon. To get there, take I-215 South from I-80 and take exit 4 off of I-215 and go left (east) on 3900 South. Turn left on Wasatch Blvd just after crossing under the highway, then the next right on Millcreek Canyon Road. 0.7 miles from the junction of Wasatch Blvd and Millcreek Canyon Road is the entrance to Millcreek Canyon and the pay booth. We will meet at 3880 Wasatch Boulevard Park and Ride before heading up the canyon.
