One great reason for living in the Salt Lake area is the wide variety of healthy hiking to be enjoyed – whether you’re a novice or expert trekker. For your convenience, here is a great list of Salt Lake City Trails from which you may narrow your choices by: easy to strenuous, whether or not fees apply, pet policies, trip distances, access restrictions (if any) while categorizing these by hiking, biking, or both.
Obviously, one of the worst things you can do is injure an ankle or foot, leaving you immobile in a potentially stark, hot and unsheltered environment. Cell phones may not get service; reviews show AT&T is the most robust, then Verizon, while Sprint coverage is scant. Talk to locals as you start out, and get their recommendations for particular cautionary measures they personally take in a given area.
