  • I stopped off at Ute Valley to meditate and do some easy hiking. Very enjoyable and of course beautiful surroundings. Dogs love it and good for the kids too.

  • Large park, good for hiking or biking. There are even some places for rock climbing. Not all trails are clearly marked so it can be easy to get lost. Trails have a challenging slope and some parts are sandy, but there's a good variety on terrain and the views are great. Takes about an hour to make a loop.
  • Good walk with various trail options (though they don't divert far from one another, so it's not too novel a choice set) and a challenging bike ride. Interesting formations in places, yet little tree coverage. A good place to take a quick hike or walk your dog (other passing pups are often friendly).
  • A nice dry hike. This park has a variety of levels. I saw a family of deers here.
  • Great for walks, hikes and biking. Casual short to long strenuous primitive. As for overlooks and beautiful sights it's got all that too and just minutes from downtown. You might see deer, magpie, bobcat or even a bear or cougar. I don't suggest you approach anything other then the bird if you can. For less stress to the land do stay on trails.
  • Nice park in the middle of the city. If you want to get away from the shallow din of the city, but still have all your bars on your cell with LTE . . . this is your place! The trails are probably somewhere in the moderate area. I did about an 8 mile loop with the lower point of 6200 feet and the highest at 6500 feet. Consider the altitude if you are visiting the area. Can be a little difficult to tell the difference between the trail and water run off areas, so be aware of where you are. Be sure to bring water, it can get very hot in certain areas.
