The trail starts in Wild Rose Park. Hike south into the canyon and the trail splits quickly. Take the left trail up the drainage ravine, arriving at a park bench. At the bench go right on Viewpoint, heading up a steeper section. The trail switchbacks one time and turns south at this point, you arrive at the pipeline scar. Go across the pipeline and the trail stays to the west of it, which makes your trek to the overlook easier. The trail reconnects back to the pipeline near the top and is the highest point. Walk over and take in the view of City Creek Canyon and the Salt Lake Valley. You’re two miles into the hike. Follow the trail west toward the first radio tower. This is a good place to have lunch before heading down to the Shoreline Trail. After lunch follow the road taking you by three radio towers. At 4 miles, you arrive at the fourth tower and see a sign for the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Go right heading north. The trail mellows out as you arrive at a subdivision. Make your way back to Wild Rose Park. This hike offers beautiful views of the Wasatch Front. Enjoy!
