Fun little walk on a paved trail at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. We read all the signs and enjoyed the beauty of our surroundings, imagining our ancestors quarrying rock for the temple. Start at the trailhead at the very beginning (west side) of the parking lot.

Perfect for little kids and especially pretty in the fall!

Good little trail. Easy enough for kids, grandparents and even toddlers. A couple good views of the river running along side Little Cottonwood Canyon. Nothing amazing, but still cool nonetheless.

Well, it is a nice, shaded, paved trail with great views of the lowest section of Little Cottonwood Canyon, but that's about it. This is a very short trail and I would really only recommend it for the families with small children as it is a great trail to allow kids to run around. Otherwise, there's better trails further up the canyon.

Very easy, fully paved trail. picked for a grandma with a cane and a baby in a stroller, but there were plenty of fun things to climb and see for the 3 and 5 year old. Don't know why the site shows parking across the street at the park and ride. Way too busy to cross the road with our crew. There is a small lot at the trailhead, or park on the road just north of it.
