Trail run: City Creek Canyon, Salt Lake City UT

December 27, 2009

I’ve run this trail millions of times, the north side of City Creek Canyon, starting from The Avenues

From the (lower) aves, you descend into the “memory grove” area down a huge set of stairs, probably 200 ft so. The trail is paved through the lower part of memory grove / city creek park and you take take the South side of the river, or the North side. The South side is a paved pedestrian path. I usually choose the North side though which is a dirt trail close to the canyon wall. Near the end of the trail section there are several ways out, but in the snow its hard to find them.

I used to run up this canyon several times a week with my old roommate. We even ran a Thanksgiving race up the canyon and back one year, 2001 I think. He beat me by a long ways.
