Awesome Abandoned Mill with Graffiti and nearby Swimming Hole

Parking just off the road in a dirt lot you walk about 7 minutes before heading up the hill to reach the Mill. Going up and down the hill can be a bit difficult with loose rock covering the hill side. Once you make it about half way up the hill you can explore the rubble filled and graffiti covered cement ruins of the Mill. Catching the sunset here is a must. The mill sits on the western side of the hill and lights up as the sun sets in the west. Golden hour is spectacular here. 

Before reaching the mill there is a medium-ish sized swimming hole with clear, cool water. During the warmer months it's great to take a dip.

Awesome Place / DON'T GO IN WATER!

Awesome place, yes it is now illegal to go there technically but go when there aren't cops if you really want to. And don't take a dip in the ponds. They DO have toxic chemicals.

Not open to public

I decided to take my 3 little kids here today at a friends recommendation and from learning how to get there from here. As we returned, there was a law enforcement officer waiting in the parking area. He pointed out the trespassing signs we had ignored. I had also taken some spray paint thinking it’d be fun to let my kids have a chance, but hat only uppped the seriousness of our trespassing. The law enforcement officer was an amazingly kind and respectable man. Out of respect for him and for the law, I’d ask that those who see this will not make the same mistake we made. Have fun in the thousands of other legal places to visit in Utah :-)

amazing views

when i was doing my research about this place, it was mostly marked to keep people out for their own safety, i don’t think law enforcement has been there for a while because of all the signs covered up. four other cars of people were there when i went around sunset, no one worried about cops. beautiful views for sunset & so fun to just wander around & explore.
