This a beautiful, hidden oasis minutes from downtown. You can bike ride up on odd days of the month and drive up on even days. There are bathrooms and picnic tables. It is a very peaceful canyon!

Nice paved trail/road with bathrooms, picnic tables, fresh drinking water, choke cherries, a creek, even tarantulas! It's quite busy though, with other pedestrians and cyclists.

This is where I took my pugs as puppies to frolic in the creek, hike and play with other dogs. It is right next to the heart of Salt Lake City's downtown and you might even see (hopefully not encounter) a mountain lion. Great place.

City Creek starts near the capitol and beautifies a green belt that leads to the Bonneville Shoreline trail where things get a little more natural - and vertical. Along the way, there are places to look back towards town in astonishment at how different it...More

So close to the middle of the city. It is reminiscent of other large city parks, only this one is a real canyon with a real stream.

Moderately challenging hike through the canyon. Trail was washed out in some places but we were able to help each other through.
