“Beautiful drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

In the bottom of the canyon are a few cub scout camps. You can drive a lot further than you would imagine. For an adventure, drive to the top. Beautiful, green, nice little stream. Good place to get away. You can even go there in the winter. Have to watch out for the people walking their dogs though. Try it, you'll like it.

“My favorite canyon in Salt Lake City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

This canyon winds up a tree-lined, two lane road. On both sides there are numerous hiking and picnicking *GEMS*. Breathtaking in all seasons!

“Great Hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

What a lovely canyon! Steep sided, river-cut, full of wildflowers and birdsong -- this is a welcome retreat from city life. Highly recommended for picnics, leashed dog walking, hiking. And, it's just minutes from anywhere in Salt Lake City.

“great mountain biking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

the mountain biking in Millcreek is excellent. From the easy Pipeline trail to the ending section of the Crest, it's all fantastic. The only thing to take into mind is that the trails are closed on odd numbered days to cyclists, so the hikers can walk on the trails more safely.

“Quiet Refuge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

When it gets too hot in the city - the canyon is a great place to go, and wind down. Just 15 minutes from my house.
