Lower Avenues Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"“The lower Avenues,” on the steepening slopes northeast of downtown Salt Lake City, constitute one of the pioneer community’s oldest intact neighborhoods. The streets and blocks were the first to deviate from the valley-floor 10-acre block plan, devised for homes, barns, corrals, gardens, and orchards. Instead, the blocks are only 2.5 acres, and the lots smaller than those below. The people who built their houses here in the Victorian mid-19th century were generally tradesmen, businessmen, and their families, not farmers."
