I particularly love this trail in the fall months. Explodes with gorgeous colors. Great for hiking, running, and biking, especially for amateur mtn bikers like myself. Dog friendly. It has multiple entry points so you can decide just how long you want to make your hike/ride.

Love biking this trail!! It’s great for beginners who are learning to handle their bike or for someone who wants a relaxed ride. There are only a couple of technical spots that are easily walked.
I prefer to start at the top of the canyon and bike to the end. Then I turn around and come back. But it can be done either way. Some people start at the top, bike to the end, turn around and only come part of the way back up when they go down a side trail to the canyon road. They then ride the canyon road down to the mouth of the canyon where a second car picks them up and takes them back to their car. Sound complicated but it’s actually fun.
Busy trail so watch for hikers and other bikers.

It's a steep start for the first 1.5 miles or so (started at the Rattlesnake Gulch Trailhead), but so worth it once you get to the top & the trail evens out.

Steep to get started but definitely worth the view of SLC!
