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

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.
