The Pipeline Trail does not climb to a peak or access a hidden waterfall deep within a canyon. Rather the trail runs horizontal, hugging the curves of the gullies and contours of the south-facing canyon wall of Mill Creek Canyon. The trail is popular because it is nearly level, running around 6,200 to 6,800 feet. An easy traverse that fluctuates between canopies of trees and views down Mill Creek Canyon, this is a trail with options. To get to the Pipeline Trail there are four possible trailheads. Each of these entry and exit points climbs from the floor of Mill Creek Canyon from various points along the highway to hook into the Pipeline Trail, where you can then hike in either direction according to how long you’d like to make the hike and where you want to exit. The Pipeline Trail can be a “Build Your Own” hike. The four possible trailheads—one at each end and two in the middle—give you many options to play with. You can create a shuttle or hike out and back. This classic, easy trail also extends to a Salt Lake City overlook on the far west side as it follows what was once a hydroelectric power generation venture in the early 1900s.
