Difficulty: Moderate ◼︎

Length: 4.2 miles round trip

Elevation Gain: 1,700 feet

Dog Friendly: No


Trailhead coordinates (copy + paste): 40.7212, -111.6581

Directions: Take the Lamb's Canyon exit off of I-80, where you can park and carpool or continue up the road about 1.25 miles to reach the trailhead parking area. This is a seasonal road, which typically opens in the late spring and closes mid-fall.


The Lamb's Canyon trail winds its way up through a dense forest, making it a good option for both scalding hot and drizzly days. It gains elevation gradually and doesn't have any overly steep sections, so it is doable for the whole family. The trail can be quite overgrown at times but is easy to follow, and ends with incredible views into Millcreek Canyon. From the top you have the option to head Southeast 1.5 miles to summit Millvue Peak, or hike Northwest to walk down into Millcreek Canyon itself. Keep in mind that Lamb's Canyon is part of a watershed, so no dogs allowed.
