Super easy for kids. Turned around just before the big uphill to the radio towers. Still a beautiful view!

This is a pretty nice trail in N SLC to get a variety of terrain. The first mile along city creek is quite gentle and often shaded, then it climbs a shaded hillside before breaking more into the open scrub oak territory. There isn't really any reason to turn around at the point marked on this map - When hiking with kids I've turned around at the saddle (~2 miles in) or hiked up to the little rise S of the saddle for a viewpoint. When running, I've run it to bountiful (a couple miles past where this route ends) or gone from the saddle S down the ridge to Ensign Peak.
