This is a great place to go that is close to downtown. It is a respite from the heat of summer. Dogs are welcome on a leash (and cleaned up after). We have hiked here in all seasons. The main walking area is shared with bicycles and a car or two and is paved. There are some dirt trails that... More

This canyon is beautiful year round. I have been there during every season and the trails are clean and well kept and pet friendly.

Very easy to walk the main trail. Very peaceful and scenic. If you leave the main trail all bets are off. Not bad just loose stone and paths are not level. Along one side trail came across a place that was serving as someone's home.

City Creek Canyon is lovely place to walk on a weekday. You can walk for miles on a either a paved road or maintained trail that on many days is car and bicycle free and parallels a creek. The trees and plants are just starting to return from their winter break. The weekends there is much more pedestrian traffic.

Welcome to downtown Salt Lake City and when you are here visiting and need a run don't settle for sidewalk jogging. Head east on State Street up past the Capitol to the right and you are heading into City Creek Canyon. A nice 10 mile round trip run. I look forward to seeing you, I'm the guy that waves to... More

This little canyon is beautiful. You can stroll, enjoy a park like setting, or hike to a higher elevations. The minute you enter this canyon you'll breath deeper and feel the stress vanish.

The trail follows City Creek from downtown, all the way up the canyon, for many, many miles. If you stay by the river, it's shady and cooler, even on those baking summer days. For jogging, you can mix and match loops to get about a 5k round trip, by cutting up zigzagging paths up the canyon walls (from Memory Grove... More

The main trail is nice and easily slopped. It is very popular for locals who bike and take there dogs there. It is a bit sunken and surrounded by trees for shade and foliage. The lower level canyon is nice but not great for Utah pictures, what we did was when we got to the end we exited the park... More
