City Creek CanyonThis 7-mile City Creek Canyon trail starts in downtown Salt Lake City, runs north on State Street into and through Memory Grove Park, and then continues up into the mountains along rushing City Creek. The paved shared-use path is open to pedestrians and runners every day, but bikes are permitted only on odd-numbered dates during the summer month. In winter, the trail's open to all users. It’s an easy and wonderful getaway from the city all year, offering a cool shaded break from the sun in the summer and a good bet for finding outdoor solitude in the winter.
