Trail shared by Ty Childers

A fairly easy entrance trail into Ute Valley Park from Tech Center Drive.

Description

This is a mostly flat and narrow trail on the south side of the canyon that enters Ute Valley Park. It's a lot less technical than the paralleling trail on the north side of the canyon, but some small and moderately technical features should be taken with care. There's also a neat natural rock bridge and some easy switchbacks.

This trail opened in 2017 and replaced a previous trail that was washed away into the ravine. You can locate the entrance farther up on the hillside off of Tech Center Drive. The trail can be taken in either direction and is fun both ways.

Nice scenery, a few small hares on path, very muddy after rain so it was very slippery. A fairly easy trail 1mi — 1h 00m
