Mill Creek Canyon - Loop trail Desolation and Dog Lake

The trail that started it all. This is the first trail that Jeremy took me on that  got me hooked on trail running. It is still my favorite. The view's into Park City, passing by 2 lakes (Desolation and Dog Lake) and the great trail make this an excellent and challenging run. The trail starts at the top of Mill Creek Canyon. It was really cold at the parking lot but I think that is the coldest spot on the entire route. Just after the start there is a split in the trail; 1 that takes off to the left up a lesser used trail and 1 off to the right up a hill. We have taken both routes. This map shows the route taking the left trail. They both meet up a few miles later and reach the same ridge overlooking Park City.

Total Miles: 10.2
Starting Elevation: 7800
Highest Point: 9658
