This is not a review but more of a question. Why isn't there access past the reservoir further into the canyon. I noticed when you get up by the reservoir there is large fences that run up both sides of the canyon and they have no trespassing signs.

I hesitate the give "Red Butte Garden Trails" a poor rating because there are a lot of beautiful trails in and around Red Butte Gardens. But the one shown on the map is probably the worst way to climb Mt. Van Cott. I wouldn't use the trail past the 0.6 mile mark on this map, it's too steep and loose, hiking this route will only contribute to erosion. Stick to the lower trails around the garden, and if you want to hike Van Cott I highly recommend the route up from Dry Creek (although parking is a problem there.

perfect place to take my dog for a quick run early morning or evening as it is not shaded.

A great trail for dogs. Moderate elevation gain towards the end but overall the steepness wasn't bad. Short hike but great views of the city and surrounding mountains.
