Details

Avenues Twin Peaks is located along the ridge line behind the Avenues and is an easy destination that provides a nice view of the Salt Lake valley.

Description: There are multiple starting points for this hike. One of the most common, is at the end of N Terrace Hills Dr. (see Trailhead Location information below). The trail follows an old jeep road east from the end of the cul-de-sac, until reaching the pipeline junction. From here, there are multiple trails and a connection to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Pick the trail that heads uphill northeast and quickly gains the ridge looking down into City Creek Canyon. The jeep road continues east, ending at the two small peaks
