Mill Creek Pipeline Trail is a 13.7 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Salt Lake City, UT that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Amazing hike that you have to have a lot of time to do. It is high elevation and in the Millcreek canyon so it costs $3 to get in so you pay on your way out. Intense elevation and dog friendly just keep them on leashes. Loved the views!
I used to go trail running on this trail all the time before work because it's close to the mouth of the canyon so it's easy to access. There are parts that get semi steep but it flattens out for a while. You can either fork left to the pipeline lookout, which looks out over the whole salt lake valley or go right to grandeur peak, which is a longer hike with steep inclines.
This is a nice hike if you want something relatively flat but out in the mountains. There are several points where you can access it, so you can pick a section as long and flat as you like. Also the last 1+ mi south of Rattlesnake gulch (not marked on this route) is nice and ends in an overlook of SL Valley.
This was a great trail but I think it is more moderate than easy
Saturday morning and pretty crowded w hikers, bikers and runners... but very beautiful and I will do it again.
I forgot to review when we did in July...it was difficult for me as I hadn't hiked in years, enjoyed shady places in between parts, strong breeze in turns around mountains which was refreshing after being so hot. Hua Hua, Paul's little Chihuahua enjoyed and handled it well, needed a few lay down shady spot breaks but was a trooper
The beginning was pretty tough but we are new to hiking, once you get past the steep uphill part of was pretty easy.
Shaded, great view.... Perfect hike with kids
It was amazing. ;)
Fun hike. Great views of city/lake/valley
It was somewhat difficult in some parts. Very pretty.
