Salt Lake City

City Creek Canyon

Accessible from the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, this paved route brings you quickly away from the urban congestion through a very pretty canyon along a pleasant creek. It is a fairly steady uphill grade once inside the Canyon.

Start downtown at the Capitol. and run the shared use path through Memory Grove Park. It is 1.3 miles to the City Creek Canyon Trailhead. From there, once can run another 5.3 miles along paved Canyon Rd. Pedestrians should stay on the creek side of the road. Between May and October, the road is closed to cars on ODD DAYS (to allow for cycling). The Water Treatment Plant is a good ‘halfway’ point for a turnaround.

Once in the canyon, there are some additional trail connections — more appropriate for trail running. Best bet is the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (see separate route in our SLC profile).
