Very lovely shopping center and a good place to sit outside with a cup of coffee. Knead era, a bakery and cafe has the best bread ever. Get a map as it is easy to get confused.

I love hiking, biking, fishing and driving up City Creek canyon. There are even a couple of sport rock climbing routes (not great, but fun if you want to just go do a quick climb). I live downtown and it's amazing how quickly you can feel out of the city. The lower canyon is nice and has several picnic areas... More

OK PEOPLE. Please stop reviewing this as an outdoor mall! It is an outdoor hiking area that actually has a trail, waterfalls and a creek. It is part of Memory Grove with many Tributes to WWI veterans and is a little oasis inside the city. it is a wonderful park for families, hikers, joggers, walkers, and has an off-leash area... More

There aren't too many cities where you can access an excellent hiking/walking/biking trail. In Salt Lake City, all of this is readily available in City Creek Canyon. Beginning at Memory Grove, which is a 5 to 10 minutes walk from downtown, the paved trail continues for up to 7 miles. For more harden hikers, the Bonneville Shoreline Trail can be... More

Very busy, mostly good biking trail. A lot of walkers, strollers and a few bikers. Challenging hill.

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.

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).

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.
