Suicide Rock (12/04/2013) The East side of this rock at the Mouth of Parley's Canyon has a sharp jagged drop. I remember it as easy climbing; although I think it foolish to climb things without a rope.
Mouth of Parleys (12/04/2013) This is the trail down to Suicide Rock and the Tube. The Bonneville Shoreline Trail and I215 are on the right. The footbridge in the center of the screen crosses the freeway. You can see the top of Mount Olympus in the distance.
This section of the trail crosses Interstate 80 at the mouth of Parley's Canyon in the Salt Lake Valley. The area includes roadside parks and the infamous Suicide Rock. The crossing allows cyclists and pedestrians to cross from Wasatch Boulevard to Foothill Drive. Prior to the construction of the Crossing, cyclists would have to go several miles and a few hundred vertical feet out of their way to cross the freeway at 1700 East. This section of trail opens up the East Side of Salt Lake to cyclists.
Suicide Rock is a small outcropping of rock in the canyon. The rock is viewable from the belt route. Local grafitti artists have painted the rock.
