TRAIL SUMMARY

Mustang Pass is a hidden gem.  Located off of Mill Creek, Mustang Pass features some great views and unique rock formations.  About 1.2 miles into the trail, there are two large boulders also known as Signal Rock.  The trail passes through various terrains but mainly follows a single dirt track.  There is a steady incline about half a mile in.  The path is very clear and easy to follow with signs and markers.  It crosses Middleton Powerline and connects with Ice House trail.  Overall Mustang Pass is a fun trail.  Wildlife and flora line the path.  Because of its length and incline, this trail is considered easy to moderate.  If you chose to access it from Mill Creek, look for a sing about 1.7 miles into Mill Creek.
