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

this is a nice high end shopping center. They have it all there. Next to the temple as well so for day time or evening time shopping it is well done for the Christmas season. The walk thru this mall was nice for being in Salt Lake City for a few days. Parties will enjoy the atmosphere here.

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

If you are new to the area and live downtown, this is a good nearby place for a bike ride, or relatively flat stroll. But the canyon is NOT scenic. Visit Millcreek if you walk dogs or want a flat stroll (Pipeline) and good scenery; Big and Little Cottonwood for Scenery.

We all enjoyed walking through this canyon. It was right in the heart of the city, but it felt rural. Plan to spend a couple of hours.

I was finally able to visit the City Creek to find out that tearing down the old mall had been worth it. The layout is spacious and interesting. Lots of nice shops.

Go to City Creek Canyon right at the fall color change. A walk through Memory Grove will leave an indelible impression, like so many melting crayons. Strange analogy, I know.. :) The creek, bridges, monuments, trees, all beautiful.
