Salt Lake City Hiking Trails
Salt Lake City’s outdoor access is legendary. There are hiking trails 10 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes from your kid’s soccer practice, and 30 minutes from an international airport.
And you don’t have to be hardcore. Or you can be hardcore. You can be whatever the heck kind of hiker you like to be on Salt Lake City’s hiking trails. If you’re an ultra trail runner, wildflower identifier, picnic packer, peak baggin’ maniac, or kid-totin’ parent, you’ll find trails that are easy, moderate, or strenuous.
