Drive 1/4 mile PAST Church Fork Picnic area on the main canyon road, approx 3 miles up the canyon, LEFT side of canyon road I'll put 2 large yellow cones in our parking lot, as landmarks for everyone by 7 AM.
Every year we get up early on Memorial Day and head for Millcreek Canyon for our annual Memorial Day Breakfast and Hike. You can do one or the other OR both. It's super fun so I hope you join us. We generally attract 20 - 40 people, depending on the weather but regardless of weather conditions, we always show up!
This year we are inviting those who attend to help bring the food so it makes the whole event easier on everyone. This is your opportunity to learn how to help set up and cook in the outdoors.
Let me know if you'll help us in some small way.
It's so beautiful in the morning, during the spring season to be in the canyons, before everyone else gets there, so if you have never done something like this, come! Family members and/or friends are invited. For your payment for breakfast, we ask that you bring something from the list below. (Just let me know a head of time what you are bringing.)
If you have any type of special breakfast dish that you would like to contribute, let me know.

8:30 am Hike:
Those who plan to hike will meet at the breakfast area and leave from there at 8:30 am. Skip the breakfast and come just for the hike if you prefer. The trail head is within walking distance. You decide which level of hike you want. Dogs may go on the hike but must be kept on a leash farther away from our breakfast area. Plan on finishing by 12 noon UNLESS you want to hike longer and we'll make sure you know about others who want a longer hike before we start.
