Miller Fork Trail (#997)

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

From the Dunraven Trailhead, the Bulwark Ridge Trail (#928-1) leads up to a junction with the Indian Trail (#927) which then connects to Miller Fork. The Miller Fork Trail from Miller Fork Road begins through a mile-long, 10-foot wide R-O-W easement following Miller Fork Creek through private land before meeting the southern end of Donner Pass Trail, but there is no parking on Miller Fork Road. Miller Fork Trail continues to follow the creek, intersects with the Indian and the Donner Cutoff Trails, and then often becomes obscure and difficult to follow before ending at the site of an old sawmill.
