Utah Hike of the week: Wild Rose Trail — North Salt Lake
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Directions • From Salt Lake City, take Highway 89 north to Eagle Ridge Drive and turn right. Follow it as it winds through a subdivision, then turn left on Eagle Point Drive and take another left on Sky Crest Lane, which dead-ends into the pleasant, jungle-gym-equipped Wild Rose Trailhead Park.

About the hike • This is a great little North Salt Lake trail. The Wild Rose Loop climbs up into the mountains behind a Davis County neighborhood, providing some great views and just enough elevation gain to get your heart pumping.

The loop is criss-crossed with mountain bike trails, and a viewpoint offshoot adds another mile to the 2-mile loop.

All trails are well-marked and clear, if slightly steep in points, and as of late September a few trees were already wearing fall colors. Destination Wild Rose Trail
