Millcreek Canyon - Millvue Peak

We tried going up to Millvue Peak late last year and were skunked because of the snow. It was nice to get to the top this year. The trail starts at Elbow Fork up Millcreek Canyon. Follow the Lambs Canyon trail until you reach the saddle. The trail up to Millvue is difficult to find and is not travelled much. It heads to the south just before the sign pointing to Lambs Canyon . The trail up isn't too difficult to follow going up the trail. When you get to the ridge if follows east until you can see the peak. We lost the trail a few times but it was easy to catch it again and make it to the top.  Great views from the top of Gobblers Knob, Parleys Canyon, Park City and Salt Lake. We lost the trail numerous times on the way down and it was nice to have a GPS to make sure we didn't get too far off course. Except for the part were my legs felt like jello it was good trail.
