To reach the Mill Gulch Road, leave Montana Highway 287 at Laurin, about 8 miles south of Sheridan. Follow the Mill Gulch Road about 12 miles to the trailhead. There are no developments at the trailhead, just some room to park where the road crosses Mill Gulch Creek and a trail sign where the trail leaves the road. To reach the Mill Creek end of the trail, take the Mill Creek Road east out of Sheridan and go about 10 miles to the junction with South Fork Mill Creek.
