A beautiful drive up the canyon. Only 30-40 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. We were there in July but one lift was open at Solitude Ski Resort along with their Honeycomb Grill. So, we rode the lift to the top of the mountain and back, then had a great lunch with wine at the Grill. Leisurely day with a good stop and GREAT secenery.

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 that circles Silver Lake.

Highly recommend a trip to the canyon, the drive is very nice. Two recommended hikes. Donut Falls. Spectacular waterfall if you reach the top of it. It's a moderate hike. Kids can make it to the base. Adults can climb some rock to get to the best spot to see it. Great easy hike around Silver Lake in Brighton, perfect for kids with a large percentage of it done on a boardwalk.

Hands down my favorite canyon to be in. I love hiking, snowboarding and riding my motorcycle up this canyon.
