This 2.4-mile loop close to the interstate and Parley's Canyon is great for days when you want to quickly exercise your dog without spending much time driving to the trailhead. If you're willing to put up with the noise from cars whizzing by on the freeway, you'll see beautiful views of the Foothills and Wasatch Mountains along the way.

Getting there

The trailhead is located in a residential neighborhood at a cul-de-sac along Benchmark Drive. There are gates with a sign prohibiting driving further S Cannon Pt Dr. You will, however, take this road back on foot back to the trailhead to complete the loop. Please be respectful of the neighborhood and pick up all dog poop to ensure access in the future.
