Mill Creek Canyon - Mt. Aire

Mt Aire, Millcreek Canyon
Wednesday, October 21, 2009

We had a great turnout for this run. We saw the turn-off for this trail when we were running Millvue Peak the previous week. What I read about the trail online said that it was steep but a shorter hike. They were not kidding about it being steep. It was a constant steep climb almost the entire way. However the view was completly worth it. To be able to see down into Parleys canyon was very unexpected. I think everyone enjoyed the view. Mt. Aire starts up Millcreek canyon at the Elbow. Head left up the trail until you see a sign directing you left and you will shortly be crossing a foot bridge. It's straight up from there until it opens and flattens at the saddle. Take the trail on the East side up the peak. It heads East and climbs up the South side of the peak.
