In the heat of Moab, just a morning of four-wheeling, mountain biking, or hiking can leave even the most ardent of outdoor explorers extremely hot and in need of cool water. Luckily, there is a spot where you can relax called Mill Creek. Just over a half-mile hike leads you to an oasis, complete with a beautiful waterfall. This area of the trail is very popular among hikers and a great location for bird watching. 

Know Before You Go

In the past few years, many tourists have taken a liking to this beautiful spot. Tread lightly and take trash with you when leaving. Directions: Take Highway 191 South from downtown Moab. Make a left onto Sage Avenue and then a quick right onto Holyoak Lane. Pass the cemetery on the right and drive two blocks until Mill Creek Drive, then make a left. Take the dirt road to the trail head. Parking can be scarce, but do not park on private property or on the prohibited powerhouse lane, as this is a work road used for electrical purposes.
