City Creek Canyon

Elevation Profile


City Creek is a nice ride for a variety of reasons. It is close to the university (3.6 miles), is closed to cars on odd-numbered days (all days in the off-season), isn't all that steep, and offers lots of shade. The real work doesn't start until just before Lower Rotary (~4.4 miles). From the gate to the top of the loop at Upper Rotary is 5.6 miles and 1360 vertical feet.

My P.R. is 31:30 (~46:00 from the U).
