Mill Creek Canyon - Rattle Snake to SL Overlook

I have not sent out invites to have a group run yet. I'm not planning on starting the trail runs until April. However Sam B. and I went up to Mill Creek on Wednesday the 24th. We started at Rattlesnake and went up to Pipeline then west to the Salt Lake overlook and back. The snow really started coming down but it was a lot of fun. All of the elevation gain is in the first mile. After you reach Pipeline it's a great flat run. The view of the valley was pretty cloudy. We stayed at the over look for a couple of minutes and by the time we left you couldn't see any of the valley because of the incoming storm.
Miles: 3.5 round trip
Starting Elevation: 5194 ft
Ending Elevation: 5813 ft
Total climb 619 ft
Time: 50 minutes
