Emigration Canyon is a major canyon and transportation route through the Wasatch Mountains. The canyon is named for the early Utah pioneers who chose to emigrate through this canyon to the much steeper Parleys Canyon which is the current route for I80.
The mouth of the canyon sits on the east side of Salt Lake City and is home to Utah Heritage Park, the This Is the Place Monument and Hogel Zoo.
Emigration Canyon is a popular route for Utah cyclists. I enjoyed riding up Emigration and down Parleys Canyon ... a ride which includes a few harrowing miles on I80 through the main canyon.
