I love the City Creek Canyon and Memory Grove area. There are always friendly people walking, hiking, biking, running. I run here often with my dog and also alone. Great way to get into nature and enjoy this beautiful valley.

Several $100-Millions have made possible and new and pleasant experience for Salt Lakers. A great variety of retail stores, from average to very good. Also, pleasant to just walk around in it. Unfortunately, there is not a robust enough living-downtown population, so the successes of City Creek have negatively impacted other newer developments. Salt Lake City needs to do more... More

I had a few hours to fill before heading back home after a week at a conference. This little hike allowed me to finally stretch my legs after hours of listening to sessions. You can head up the road on the right side of the capitol building, until you read the top end of the park (I think I never... More

Downtown canyon with hiking, biking, and picnicking. Open year round! Picnic tables available as well as restrooms. A running creek too! Beware of bike schedules in the summer (odd dates for bikes, even dates for cars, all days for walkers).

Great architecture and great store. The atmosphere is nice, especially because of the fountains and the river all around the mall.

Short hike - you can tailor it to your group easily. Parking can be a pain, but if you are flexible, it can be great. For the less adventurous, there are several parks in the city limits that the creek flows through.

Feels safe, easy to plot a run of a variety of lengths. You can't beat the scenery. It is so convenient to downtown, there's no excuse not to fit in a run before your day at the convention center or at attractions.

If you are visiting the Capitol you must take a walk along this canyon. Super easy, as it is paved on one side (a little tricky to hike on the dirt path as parts are washed away), yet you feel like you are miles away from the hubbub of the city. It's quiet, peaceful, many trees. And the first part... More

I love hiking this canyon, right outside a neighborhood, it is so beautiful all times of the year. The terrain changes, it is quiet, and a great place to walk, exercise and enjoy nature
