Hike 39: Bonneville Shoreline Trail with my Dad

Hike 39
10/25/16
3.4 miles
Bonneville Shoreline Trail to Bear Canyon

My parents came to Salt Lake City for a couple of days this week as they were on their way back home to the Bay Area after spending a little while in Kansas City visiting with my grandparents. The trip caused my dad to mess up his workout regiment, so I took him on a hike one morning while my mom slept in. We didn’t want to spend all morning hiking, so we stuck close to home and I took him on a 3+ mile trek on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, my usual path from Hidden Valley Park in Sandy to the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge. It’s a great trail for a workout if you keep a steady pace. I had Matthew on my back too.

We set out just after 9am and most of the trail was in the shade of the mountain. We set a quick pace and got to the bridge in just over half an hour. I snapped a few photos, but the hike was meant to be quick for the workout.

Once we got to the bridge, Matthew was free to get down and run for a few minutes.

Lovely morning, looking north.
