Directions • Start at Memory Grove park in Salt Lake City, located at 300 North Canyon Road (about 120 East) or 11th Avenue and B Street. This beautiful little park is a real Salt Lake City gem.
Walk north after entering the park, and the path will pass over a stream and start up the canyon. On a recent day, though, it petered out relatively quickly to a slightly steep dropoff to the stream, so I crossed back over the river and up to the 1.2-mile paved City Creek path, then took another small path up again to the start of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
