The reason our family moved here was for the proximity to some of this country's most breathtaking scenery. Big Cottonwood Canyon is only a few minutes from downtown and is absolutely stunning in any season.

This canyon is close to Salt Lake City and an easy drive. There are some nice hikes and good food up at Solitude, if you wanted a nice lunch.

I love this canyon and its beauty. At the very top of soldier summit is a great short little hike to bloods lake, I especially love driving in the canyon and doing hikes in the fall with the leaves.

We love this place! Lots of trails for various abilities. Parking can be a challenge at the trailheads. At the top of the canyon, a walk around Silver Lake is easy, short and pleasant. You can take a trail into the mountains off the trail...More
