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.

How to Get There

No Trespassing

I went to the mill today to explore with a few friends, and there were some new signs up. No trespassing signs, and warning signs mentioning that there were high levels of arsenic and lead in the area. My friends and I didn't think too much of the signs and continued to explore and take some rad photos. However, on the hike back, we were stopped by law enforcement and issued warnings. The officer took down our names and entered us into the local system with a warning. It's now considered illegal trespassing to explore the mill. Consider this before venturing further.

Anxious Adventure

Me and my friends went here at night and it was cool but also super scary!! Make sure you have a really good flash light and some good hiking shoes so your less prone to slipping! I slipped lots of times cause I didn't wear shoes with good tread. Also, I would highly suggest going during the day so you can see your surrounding better and also because there was a homeless man living there and was asleep in a sleeping bag while we were there....he may or may not have been alive. Soooooo yeah. It was still super fun to go though!!

Such A Cool Place

We love this place! It's such a unique and cool experience. We've brought our friends here several times to watch the sun set and to just hang out.

"Its got those Hip-Hop Vibes"

I'm not one for graffiti, but here it compliments the area in an interesting way. Being surrounded by the tall graffitied landmarks made me want to film a rap video and drink 40's. I wasn't able to make it there at sunset but guarantee that's the time to hit it. Based on the amount of garbage I found around the area, it's safe to say it's a common camp/party location. However, that didn't ruin the experience, I was half expecting something similar based on the nature of the area.

Great Spot

Lots of old buildings like this in this area of Utah. This is by far one of the largest and most well preserved though, hopefully it never gets demolished.
