There are so many great trails in the Salt Lake Valley. This list includes hikes in the foothills and natural areas in urban and residential areas. For this post I did not include trails that are more than five minutes up any canyon, but you can find those in posts about Millcreek, Big Cottonwood, and Little Cottonwood Canyons.

I will list these from north to south and below will be the distance and difficulty.
