The Pipeline Trail

The Pipeline Trail in Mill Creek Canyon is a popular hiking and cycling trail near Salt Lake City. The trail follows an old pipeline that used to transport water from the canyon to Salt Lake City. The trail is a nice flat even grade ideal of new mountain bikers.

The trail itself is on an exposed South facing slope. As such, it is one of the first trails to open in the Spring, but can get a bit hot during the Summer. The trail provides many vistas of the Salt Lake Valley and Mill Creek Canyon.

For this set of pictures, I accessed the trail through Rattlesnake Canyon (Yes, there is a good chance you will encounter rattlesnakes on this trail in the Spring, Summer or Fall). Rattlesnake is the first trailhead you pass on the Mill Creek Road. You can also access the trail from Church Fork Picnic Area and the Terraces.
