The City Creek canyon is a nice place to walk if its not too cold. The creek runs from the mountains all the way to the City Creek Center in Downtown.

On the hottest days, the paths are dappled on shade and the place is simply glorious. Great place for family and friends.

Always open to walkers. Check for times if you want to bike. Top of Canyon is watershed (no dogs or pets). Quiet during the week, used by tourists and locals alike. Top section of Canyon - check dates to determine if car traffic is allowed.

You are right in town and park and hike down into the canyon on paved switchbacks and stairs and part is like a city park with mowed grass and a pond and a large area for dogs to frolic off leash. Part is more rugged and natural and a stream nearby with some small waterfalls give off a relaxing sound.... More

The first part of this trail is pretty dry and hot but once you pass the water treatment plant it gets good. There is more shade and it is a lot more green. I love going here in the fall it is a great trail to run.

Very pleasant shopping open air site with an actual creek running through with rocks and plants. In winter, it is under roof. Plenty of parking available close by.

Breathtaking views of the city! There are variety of hikes you can take or you can spend the day in Memory Grove if you don't feel like hiking.
