“A beautiful run through, among other things, the major junction up above Wild Rose Park and City Creek Canyon.”— Abandoned User
Also note that, unfortunately, this run does not have clean air all year round. For the most part, it does, but there are times in winter when the nearby mining and refinery operations can be smelled here, especially if the wind is not in your favor.
From the junction, I recommend returning to Wild Rose Park via the ridge to the north (North Ridge to Wild Rose Junction) or the one to the south (South Ridge to Wild Rose Junction) of this one (the one you came up). This gives more variety to your run, and these descents are easier, because the trails are well worn.
Also from the junction, you could drop into City Creek Canyon, but as given by the line on the map, I prefer to run along the North Ridge of City Creek Canyon. The path shown stops at a T-junction. Going straight takes you further up the ridge on the Grandview Route towards Rudy's Flat while going left takes you to the trailhead at Woodbriar Way.
