Temple Quarry Trail is a 0.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Sandy, UT that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
Three moms, three preschoolers, two toddlers and a new born. It was perfect for our group. the kids were able to climb and run, moms could chat and still keep up with kids. The foliage was beautiful. because it was paved we were able to use strollers, too. definitely not a hike, but great for a walk in nature.
This doesn't qualify as a hike in my books, but it's still enjoyable. It's a completely paved loop that is short and has informational signs along the way. My kids loved reading the signs. The kids and I left the paved route and climbed all over the rocks in the dry creek bed which was their favorite part.
Crazy cool history markers help you learn about the area and how pioneers used it. I'm not LDS and I still thought it was cool.
super easy loop part of it is wheelchair accessible. The river is dry but it's fun to walk through the granite river bed. Good mountain biking trail that starts here too.
Loved it, lots to learn as well!
Not a hike as much as a walk. There was no water either. Cool history which is why it got a three.
There is absolutely nothing to do or view here. There is no water as it has been redirected...so just a normal walk.
Honestly I was a little disappointed this was so short and easy. Luckily I planned a backup so we did Lisa Falls as well. Bonus points for how close it is to town and the info signs teaching about the area
Awesome technical climb with rewarding downhill. Short and sweet
Fun to play on the boulders in the creek bed
Great little hike. My four little kids loved it. We even saw some repellers.
The trail never seems to disappoint! We ran the trail and ended up continuing up the trail so we went 3 miles up and 3 miles back down. Great night run/hike and many cool opportunities for stunning pictures!
Mainly flat trail, that had a lot of things to look at. I continued to run up the trail and made it a long run. There's a lot of things to stop and look at like the temple quarry meetinghouse that is off to the side. Would recommend it for any age hiker, as well as runners. It also is pretty shaded.
Cool trail that has several placards that teach you about the history of the area. Definitely recommend!
We went on a walk with the kids and they loved it. We went in the morning, which made it nice and cool. There are signs along the way telling about the trail. The kids liked it, it took 20 minutes, and we will likely do it again. Great for kids.
It was cool to see the ruins of the old rock quarry, but there is a lot of graffiti
