“The heart of the City Creek trail system.”— Blaine Kempe
The trail itself is nice, winding through the trees and presenting visitors with some rocks and obstacles and a few steep grades. There will be a couple of forks in the trail, but you'll see the "City Creek Trail" signs labeling which way to go.
Once you are past bridge 10 you'll see a junction with a green bench. That is the end of Lower City Creek Trail, if you continue straight you'll start up the Upper City Creek Trail which has a spot between bridges 10 and 11 with >20% grade but only for a short distance, use caution.
The trail is comprised of some rocks, roots, a few obstacles and some steep grades as you head up to Kinport road. At the Kinport Road you can come back the way you came or you can head to the right up a trail called mushroom (tougher version of the upper city creek).
