Neff's Canyon Trail is a 3.5 mile hike or backcountry ski trail. It begins as an old jeep road and then leads into the Mount Olympus Wilderness Area. The canyon is larger than it may seem and has many smaller drainages. The hiking opportunities are varied, with access to the Desolation Trail in Thayne Canyon. Neff's Cave, claimed to be one of the deepest caves in the United States, is also accessible by this trail. However, the cave has been closed due to natural hazards and spelunking difficulties. Written permission is necessary to gain access.

Dogs are allowed in Mill Creek Canyon but must be kept on a leash at all trail heads and developed sites including the parking areas.
