City Creek Canyon Trail

A moderately difficult trail that is family- and dog-friendly, features a nearby river, and has both a natural trail and a paved trail that parallel each other. A quick and easy way to get out of the city and into the mountains, City Creek Canyon Trail is the closest canyon hike to downtown and is easy to access by foot or by car. The paved part of the trail is a road open to pedestrians, bicycles on odd-numbered days, and motor vehicles on even-numbered days. The natural trail is restricted to only hikers. It is an easy trail - it is only rated moderate due to the gain in elevation. There are also many other trails that split off from this trail, mostly at the trailhead.
