City Creek Canyon is a 6.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Salt Lake City, Utah that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from January until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

This is a clean hike and could be hiked in just shoes or boots.
To clarify the description, there are two parallel paths here: The paved road, which is open to cars on even days, bikes on odd days, but always to pedestrians, (and is heavily used - If you walk/hike/run on the road, make sure you stay creekside (like all the huge signs tell you)), and the trail, which is just uphill to the NW. The trail still sees a lot of traffic, but not as much as the road. There are several places to access the trail - just look for any trail going uphill away from the creek and it should take you there. Dogs aren't allowed past the water treatment plan, roughly where the trail ends. Cycling is very nice all the way up 6 miles to Rotary Park. The nicest thing about the trail is that it gets more shade then most of the other trails in the area. The road is nice in that it puts you right next to the creek.
Paved road. Didn't see any indication of where the trail ends.
Did this a few years ago. Great for all ages
Nice and easy walk on paved road up City Creek trail with dog on leash. Great for strollers and bikes. Would do it again if looking for a short and easy hike.
