    Such diversity in hiking trails. I broke my leg there & I still can't stay away. My favorite hike is to Dog lake. One of the few canyons in Salt lake to take your dogs because it is not a water shed.  more »

    A beautiful, narrow canyon. In and out only, does not go over the summit. $3 entry fee. Picnic spots available, limited. Approach on 3800 South Street and go 9 miles to the end of the road, narrow in ...  more »

    Lovely mountain flowers and air but we did find it impossible to go up the hill with the truck at the top, so just turn around!  more »

    A great place to get away from the city. If you like Trees, Creeks, Things to climb, this is your place. A warning to new hikers; depending on where and which trail you take, it will be a challenge. Don't get me wrong, it is defitely worth the hike, but not highly recommended to people that want an easy walk through. You will have to walk at an incline. Also, to those who bring your dogs, please pic up their droppings. Don't just put it in a bag and toss it to the side of the trail. Us climbers especially don't want to find a surprise under our shoe after climbing things off trail. Be responsible and respectful of nature. You're not in the city anymore (Still, pick up after your dog). Other than the OCCASIONAL (You will hardly see them) doggy goody bags laying around, it is a beautiful place to just get away. I give this place 5 stars for sure. Definitely going back every Thursday. I've also posted a few pictures. Hope this review helps!

    I have loved this canyon since I was a kid, but the last few times I was there it was filled with dog poop. There were piles everywhere!!! Even worse, there was bagged up poo all over too, including hanging from a tree. I'm a dog lover and have dogs of my own, so I'm happy they have a beautiful place to visit, but their people need to be MUCH better at cleaning up after their fur babies.

    Way too busy, bikers ride super irresponsibly and drivers drive to fast. Aside from that, motorcycles should be free.
