The route begins at East Dam creek trailhead along the main Mill Creek Road. The trail climbs the drainage for a while, then gets onto logging roads taking it to the east, upcanyon. Grind up logging roads, through some areas burned on 2007 (many of which are recovering beautifully, and some of which still have the scorched earth look).Eventually, gain trails on the ridgelines to 8500 feet, heading north now,&nbsp; where you get spectacular views of the surrounding Mill Creek peaks.&nbsp; </p><p>Further East, Pyramid Peak and the high broad ridge connecting to it dominate the view.Mt.
