INTRO

"The climb of Millcreek Canyon is a moderate grade climb very close to Salt Lake City. It contains several flats along the way for recover which lessen its average grade. The 2nd half contains more shade and the final few miles are closed to vehicles although it can still be quite busy on weekends. The pavement ends at its summit." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, 50 Climbs (by Bike) in Utah, pg. 88.)
Average grade is 5.3% with 2,480' gained with 0 descent.  The climb is fairly steady throughout with 44% at 0-5% grade and 54% at 5-10%.  The steepest quarter-mile is 8.8%.

Really beautiful climb through the forest. Some challenging sections, but enough flats / false flats to give you a break. Up past the winter gate (so called because it is closed to cars in the winter) the road narrows significantly and there is no shoulder. Traffic can be heavy, so be alert. The road quality isn't great, so keep an eye out for potholes on the descent.
