This was a really great trail. It was well shaded during the first two miles. The paths in some sections were very narrow with high grasses on both sides. I had to jump in the high grass several times to allow the mountain bikers through. Saw 6 groups of people throughout the entire hike on a Friday afternoon.

I did a 6 mile sunrise run from Downtown SLC up this trail and back. really only got 2 miles into the trail where there is the steel climb. This is a great place to see both the city and the valley that city creek travels in. Sunrise was amazing from here!

We veered to the right of the trail to climb up the rolling hills. There are a few very steep areas along these trails but the scenery was absolutely stunning! Spring wildflowers and lush greenery. Awesome views of the mountains and city.

Excellent way to push the legs going up to the cell phone towers. Saw deer (and a bow hunter!) and beautiful views of the downtown area.

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.

The only down side to this trail is how obnoxious it is to try to get some peace on a beautiful hike and you can only hear the music from whatever reception sh is playing when it is going on at the event center. But it is still so worth it! Great hike! If you're craving Forrest scenery this is the hike for you. Loved it. Just annoying you can hear the music echoing so far up the hike.

Really good hike in terms of exercise. Almost anyone can do this trail as it isn't too steep and the trails are fairly wide for most of the hike. Landscape is pretty open once you get to the top, not many trees after the initial summit. The best part of the hike is at the highest summit. The view of the Salt Lake Valley is absolutely stunning. Trail was pet friendly with poop-scoop bags.
