That was not a hiking trail. It was a dog park.

Beautiful park where the trail starts. Very dog friendly. Paved trail option for strollers. Gorgeous scenery including the top of the capital building peaking over the hill. Only downside is there is terrible parking availability.

Neighborhood favorite. It's not stunning but it's really great for a quick woodsy walk- I prefer the dirt side, then you can dip your toes in the stream!

Super easy trail. One option is ADA accessible and the other is a dirt path on the other side of the creek. Great for kids or those who don't like an incline.

This is a ok trail. Unfortunately some dog owners don't know how to clean up after their dogs, which leaves an undesired odor.

The park is closed off by a gate. This is where the trail should really start since its the road that runs through the park. The park is beautiful. There is also an off leash walk for dogs.

Charming place good for all ages and abilities IF you love dogs since they are roaming free and happy. Took the road up and hoped over to the dirt trail on the way back. Great place to renew your respect for Memorial Day or any day. Can't wait to come again and show my kids.

Lots of people but many opportunities to stray off a little. Fun place to adventure

My pup and I love this trail. It's not a crazy workout but it's scenic, well-shaded, and offers plenty of opportunities for my dog to swim and socialize with other dogs. I feel very safe doing this trail alone, which is an added bonus.

Beautiful area as you walk into Memory Grove. We took the harder Trail to the right (east) of the creek but came back on the paved route. Enjoyable hike for the whole family!

Very pretty trail. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the scenery. However, be warned that there are a TON of wet dogs running free all through the park and trail! I got jumped on a number of times. Yuck.

As someone else mentioned, once you are out of the "park" trail, parts of the trail are eroded and sometimes kind of scary. Definitely wear good shoes if you plan to do the entire trail as listed.

Very easy hike, you do have an option where you want to be adventurous or just an easy walk. There is paved roads that you can take or the dirt road. Do know that the dirty road is being eaten away at some parts, so if you have hiking shoes with better grip...that will definitely help. If you have a puppy and want to take it for you to hike...this is a great place to hike with your pet. There are so many dogs everywhere.

Getting There:
Take the 600 N. exit in Salt Lake City and turn east. Then turn right onto 300 W. Turn left onto N. Temple. Follow that street until you reach B Street and then turn left. Follow B street, which will take you up by the Capitol and around a little canyon. After a little loop in the road you'll see a large Trail head sign for City Creek Canyon. The trail starts just south across the street from this sign. You can also start at the opposite end of the trail by walking the paved path from Memory Grove and heading north.

The entire trail is paved which makes it accessible for strollers and wheel chairs. There were a lot of people with dogs and a lot of bikers. On the way down we stayed on the west side of the creek, which was partially shaded. Part of the way down there are little pools in the river that people have made with little rock walls. It's really cool to see. On our way back we tried to take the east side of the river, but should only have taken it from Memory Grove to about halfway. We tried to go the whole way, and due to a lot of wash outs, and multiple trails made for a harrowing journey with a 5 and 8 year old. It was a fun trail and was really nice since it was a much shorter drive than most hikes in other canyons. If you stay on the paved trail it was very easy and enjoyable.
