Parleys Canyon is one of the primary canyons on the Wasatch Front. Parleys Canyon is just south of Emigration Canyon. The first emigrants in the Salt Lake Valley chose to go through Emigration as the canyon is more open than Parleys Canyon. The first major roads into the Salt Lake Valley chose to follow Parleys Creek.
Today the canyon is dominated by Interstate 80. The creek itself runs through a system of piped below the interstate.
There are currently two reservoirs on the creek (Little Dell and Mountain Dell. The pioneers built a small dam on the creek adjacent to Suicide Rock at the mouth of Parleys canyon.
The creek runs through the Parleys Nature Park and Sugar House Park and eventually drains into the Jordan River and into the Great Salt Lake.
