I hiked part of the Red Cliffs trail which is really more for bikes, but that led me to the City Creek trail which I loved. Amazing panoramic views and branch points to other trails including the Pioneer Hills trail. Miles and miles ...

If you love slot canyons, great photo ops, water, and fun you might like this place! Camping is available. Day use too! I live 10 miles from here and always bring out of town guests. They are always amazed.
