Trail Information

Highlights

Winding its way through the Mill Canyon OHV Complex in the Wasatch Mountain State Park, this easy off-road trail will guide you from Midway over to American Fork Canyon via Lower Mill Canyon. Once it opens in the springtime, OHV enthusiasts flock to the area to explore the miles of trails that the Wasatch Mountains have to offer. Although Baker Fork Road is maintained, it provides access to incredible views and many other trails carrying in difficulty such as Forest Lake and Mineral Basin. Whether you are looking to kill a few hours, or need to get away for the weekend, this mountainous OHV complex is full of trails to escape the heat and get you away from the rush of the city.

Ran this trail today, it is gorgeous as usual. I would bump the difficulty to a 2, the road has become a lot more rocky and washed out compared to just last year. Still easy enough for pretty much any stock vehicle.

I came up from American Fork canyon. There were a few mountain bikers in the area. Instead of turning left at waypoint 4, I turned right to go towards Cascade Springs. There were a couple guided atv's tours (3 vehicle groups) and some solo. The roads are a bit softer in places. So it kicks up a bunch of dust. I marked on the picture of the map where I turned off from waypoint 4 then a couple other turns that led me to Cascade Springs. Along the way there's a fun little pond crossing. It was about 18" ish deep. South of there you'll find a newly paved road where you can turn left to go towards the lower parking lot of Cascade Springs and eventually to Soldier Hollow in South Midway or right to the upper parking lot of Cascade Springs and eventually connect with the Alpine Loop that will take you to the either Provo or American Fork Canyons. Beautiful scenery all along the way with overlooks into the Heber Valley. Tons of little off shoots as well. Some marked with no vehicle signs though.

Really nice scenic trail, easy driving. Suitable for any stock SUV or crossover. We stopped a bunch of times and took in the views. The greatest hazard on the trail were the other users doing 50 mph around blind corners. There were tons of little offshoots onto tighter FS roads that I'd like to come back to explore. The other major route out was Cummings Parkway, which looks like there's a really nice section with no trees that I'd like to go back and check out. There's lots of dispersed camping along the way that could fit large size groups with multiple vehicles.
