Mill Creek Canyon WSA (9,780 acres)

Mill Creek WSAMajor canyons within the WSA include the North Fork of Mill Creek, Rill Creek, and Burkholder Draw.  Riparian vegetation follows the streams within the canyons.  Above these canyons are pinyon-juniper/blackbrush vegetation and large expanses of Navajo sandstone domes and fins.  The Mill Creek Canyon WSA is best know for its perennial streams, sheer canyon walls, large Navajo sandstone “fins” and wonderful hiking opportunities.

Location: Just east of Moab. From Moab, the mouth of Mill Creek Canyon is accessible via Powerhouse Lane from the parking area adjacent to the remains of an old dam.  The Sand Flats Road provides access to the upper portion of the WSA.
