Beginning and end times for this off-site event include travel time for the recommended transportation method. Transportation details are below.

Experience Salt Lake City's proximity to the Wasatch Mountains with a 3-mile walk around Memory Grove.

After a brief, fare-free ride on TRAX from Courthouse Station to City Creek Station, you'll enter the mouth of City Creek Canyon at the north end of downtown. While ascending the gently inclined foothills of the historic park, you'll enjoy stops at civic memorials and walk along trails accompanied by the quiet roar of the creek, which will be channeling the spring run-off from snow-capped mountains miles up the canyon down to the Jordan River and on to the Great Salt Lake. On the return trip, you'll climb a set of switch-back stairs up to the Utah State Capitol and enjoy south-facing views of the Salt Lake valley. The descent down State Street will lead you to Temple Square and the heart of downtown Salt Lake City.

This is a beginner-level hike on paved roads and trails. The second half of the hike will have a 375-foot elevation gain, primarily on stairs. Walking shoes and dressing in layers is recommended.

Accessibility: Walk, standing, maneuvering city streets, climbing stairs.

Transportation: TRAX (light rail) from conference hotel and walking. Meet your hiking guide at the 600 South entrance of the Grand America.
