The Mill Ridge Trail begins at Forest Road 9700-115 and ends at Forest Road 9700-118.
This was once part of 4W326, but was bypassed because it includes a difficult hillclimb. It remains an alternate for those looking for a real challenge. The trail ends on the 118 spur; travel up it about ¼ mile to re-join 4W326.
