About This Trail

[Total: 2    Average: 3/5]

Millard Canyon is tucked just north of the nearby residential neighborhoods in the foothills. The trail starts at a campground area (restrooms available), and then heads into a narrow canyon. There are lots of trees, and in high water years you will need to do many deep stream crossings. The trail concludes at a seasonal waterfall, which is gorgeous and roars with power during high water years (the best time to go is after the first several rainstorms of the season in spring).

My name is Nicole Dominick, and I’ve been hiking with Hike it Baby since May 2016 with my daughter. She is now 4.5 years old and has hiked over 400 miles! She has been carried for most of those miles, but we enjoy every journey. We were both born and raised in Southern CA but now live in Colorado Springs, CO.
