Description

This is a higher elevation alternative to a section of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST): Dry Creek to City Creek. The trail passes through Morris Meadows, which feed the Morris Reservoir at the start of the Morris Reservoir Bonneville Shoreline Trail Access and offers some excellent views of both downtown Salt Lake City and City Creek Canyon at the cost of packing all the elevation gain in a short section.
