Great for hiking with dog

Odd days are dog days. Dogs are allowed off leash! Parking can be an issue because this canyon is popular.

My cousins who live in SLC recommended this hike. We did the desolation trail which was a very short hike but really lovely. A bit difficult in several parts and turns due to snow and we didn't have chains under our shoes so we were sliding a bit but we enjoyed the hike thoroughly. The paths are very narrow so... More

I went running/jogging here one evening at sunset and it was really beautiful. Quiet, serene, great views of the mountains and greater Salt Lake.

20 minutes from down town Salt Lake city. Easy drive. Seem to us sea level types that we gained a lot of altitude. Lots of opportunities for different hikes and trails. We were pretty late in the season so the colors were incredible. We did no research a head of time and just wanted a quick hike before heading to... More

Millcreek has great sites for picnics and a lot of great hikes. You pay $3 per vehicle on the way out of the canyon. You can bring your odd dog into the canyon on odd days! Grandeur peak is a classic hike that is moderate and can get pretty hot in the summer as it is entirely on the south... More

This gem is getting more crowded because people are finding out about it. There are numerous scenic hikes and picnic spots throughout the canyon. Go on a weekday and you will miss the crowds. Check online for hikes info. There is a minimal charge upon exiting the canyon.

Had a fun cookout with my cousin. It was a nice drive. There are plenty of cookout sites. Love to go there in the fall to see the beautiful fall leaves.

I never go hiking in my country but I know when I move here for sure I have to do something like this because my husband really wants me to try something new. I'm up for it even though I have a fear of height! I always want to see the colorful leaves because I didn't get to see things... More
