Trail shared by Gabriel Erso

A super fun run over winding red rock overlooking the city.

Features Views

Probably not advisable in wet/icy conditions as the rock may get quite slippery.

Description

This trail is a great out-and-back (2.7 miles) on red rock overlooking town. You can connect it to an out-and-back on City Creek Trail for a longer run (8 miles), or connect it to City Creek Trail and back along the Red Hills Pkwy bike route for a loop-style route with an easier paved finish (7 miles).

This trail is mostly on slickrock and has a couple mild/short scrambles. Excellent views and fun footwork abound as you follow little cairns that mark the way.
