From the Bobtail Trailhead, go about one half mile down Bobtail Ridge Trail 194 to the fork where Mill Creek Trail 199 begins. Mill Creek Trail starts northward through a thick stand of pine. After almost another half mile, a series of switch backs drops down to a dry wash which is the upper end of Mill Creek. Follow this wash west. After 1.3 miles (from beginning) the trail swings south and follows the creek which is sometimes difficult to locate due to flooding. Two miles from the beginning, the trail crosses the creek and widens. After a half mile, the trail begins to climb out of the creek and follows the ridge on the north side. The trail ends at a spur of Forest Road 221.
The Pinal Mountain is noted for its scenic beauty and ruggedness. Almost the entire length of this trail is shaded offering good examples of riparian habitat. This trail offers excellent views of Bobtail Ridge and the Basin Area are offered.
Directions: From Globe, Drive south on Forest Route 112 for about 3.5 miles to Forest Route 55. Turn southwest and travel on 55 to its junction with Forest Route 651. Follow 651 until it ends near the Bobtail Ridge Trailhead. From the Bobtail Trailhead, go about one half mile down Bobtail Ridge Trail 194 to the fork where Mill Creek Trail 199 begins.
