Upper Avenues Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Salt Lake City’s “upper Avenues” offer sweeping views of the city and valley below, as well as the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountains. Snowcapped except in summer, the mountain ranges frame the panorama. Landmarks pop out: the domed Utah State Capitol to the west, downtown’s skyline, the University of Utah campus. A vast grid of streets and boulevards rolls into the southern distance. Like the lower Avenues, the high hillside is home to historic residences, diverse architecture, and, on the area’s east side, Salt Lake City Cemetery."
