“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

There isn't a place quite like it. The smells and openness while under the cover of the trees is really an uplifting experience. I can only hope people don't destroy this treasure.

“Beautiful Canyons.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Expect to see a lot of people up this canyon, it has so many activities and is beautiful, but well used by the public.

“The best part of living by the mountains”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Whether for a hike, a picnic or to see the leaves, Big Cottonwood provides opportunities to be close to nature and enjoy the best of Salt Lake. Also enjoy a couple of nice restaurants. Brighton is a treat, winter or summer. Brighton and Solitude resorts provide lower lift prices and are preferred by the natives. No tourists in the way!

“Beautiful Biway”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Spent a good couple hours driving and stopping to take pictures of the scenery. If I had more time, a hike would have been excellent. Beautiful area of the country. Do not miss this location if you are in the area.

“Climbing heaven”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Whatever your level of expirience there is a climb for you. If you haven't climbed this is where you want to learn. I have spent much of my time in this canyon over my life and have been so greatful to live so close to so much beauty adventure and a place to just get away.
