Another of my favorite SLC trails. When I used to work in downtown SLC, I'd often do this one during lunchtime (OK, long 90 minute lunchtimes). Exposed (take water) and can be steep in places (another plug for trail running shoes with a beefy tread - Hoka Challenger or Saucony Peregrine). I loved this in the wintertime too, even with deep snow - I just put gaiters on - bounding down the ridges descending with the snow covering and cushioning the rocks was almost like flying.
