This was a fun little hike. It was steep in some parts, but other parts were very nice and beautiful and just relaxing.

We started off by driving up Millcreek canyon as far as you can go to a large parking area. From there we took the Big Water trail, which takes you kind of South, maybe South East up the mountain from the parking area to Dog Lake.

These trails up in Millcreek and Big Cottonwood Canyons all pretty much connect at one point or another. One thing we did notice was that there were a LOT of mountain bikers up on these trails. We probably passed over 25 bikes, some of which were in groups. When we arrived up at Dog Lake, there were roughly 10 or so people up there, all around the lake. Bikers were also coming and going.

Someday I'd like to do one of these trails. I don't think my downhill bike would cut it doing a lot of up-hill biking, but you never know.

Here are a few pictures from the trip:

Sorry, I laughed at the knife on your belt. But only because you pointed it out! :lol: Can't believe I've lived in Salt Lake for 6 years now and still never hiked up Millcreek Canyon.

Lol! Probably shouldn't have pointed it out. I love Millcreek and wish I hiked it more. Got a post coming about Grandure Peak.

Nice! I just hiked this for the first time last fall. Loved it! Went up Big Water and down Little Water. I decided after that trip that I need to do some more hiking in Millcreek. Grandeur and Mt. Aire on the to do list now.
