This hike is great for birds, elk, coyotes and little critters.

Hollowell Park and Mill Creek Basin Loop – easy level hike. Trailhead 8400 feet; 3.4 miles round trip and 620 foot elevation gain. This is a great hike for birds and wildflowers.The trail starts out in a small meadow where beavers have damned up Mill Creek and willows have filled in the area.
