Attraction: Silver Lake Loop Trail
Address: Big Cottonwood Canyon
Close to: Solitude Mountain Ski Resort
The little loop around Silver Lake is one of the most popular and non-hiker friendly hikes in the Salt Lake Area. It’s just a mile and much of it is made up of a boardwalk that rises out of the marshy areas of the lake so it’s perfect for little kids. Fair warning – it does get muddy and bumpy on the far side so taking a double stroller was not my smartest moments. These days we wear the baby in the carrier and that makes life much easier for everyone!
