Road to the TerracesRoad to the Terraces (05/19/2006) The Bowman Trail starts at the Terraces campground. Since this is a one lane road, I prefer to park on Mill Creek Road and walk up it. Others prefer to park closer to the trailhead.

The Bowman Trail

This gallery shows images from the Maple Grove Picnic area, the Terraces Picnic area and the Bowman Trail.

This section of Mill Creek Canyon is well known to Cross Country skiers. During the winter months, the park service closes the main Mill Creek Canyon road at Maple Grove. Crosscountry skiers can then ski along the main canyon road. Backcountry skiers will take the steeper path up the Bowman trail which heads up a side canyon to the south of Mill Creek.

I took this set of pictures on May 19, 2006. The main Mill Creek Road was still closed but the snow was melted.

This gallery includes pictures of the Maple Grove Picnic area and the Terraces Group Picnic area. The Terraces Group Picnic area is a quarter mile from Mill Creek up a single lane road. If you are attending a picnic at the area or hiking the Bowman trail, I strongly recommend that you park on the main canyon road. The road to the Terraces is not wide enough for people to pass.
