City Creek Canyon Ramble Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The City Creek Canyon Ramble is a 13.6-mile out-and-back ascent and descent of City Creek Canyon in Salt Lake City, starting and finishing at the state capitol. Although the elevation difference between the start–finish and the turnaround point is over 1.

City Creek originates in the mountains northeast of downtown Salt Lake City. The waters flow down a ravine popularly known as City Creek Canyon. After exiting the canyon, the creek travels in an underground conduit to the Jordan River, on the
west side of Salt Lake City. City Creek, just 14.5 miles long, was Salt Lake City’s chief water supply until 1882."
