From SLC, head East through Parley's Canyon on I-80. Take the Kimball Junction exit, then turn right. Turn right again onto Olympic Parkway. At the round-a-bout, take the 2nd exit heading towards Utah Olympic Park. Look for the dirt parking lot on the left side of the road. There are no restrooms available.
Distance: 1.6 miles RT
Elevation gain: 75 ft
Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour
Dog friendly? Yes, off leash
Kid friendly? Yes!
The parking lot can get full quickly. If there's not enough room to park here, you can park along Olympic Parkway on the side of the road.
Enter the gates.
When you first walk in the park, you can go right or left - doesn't matter. I prefer to go right, and walk in a counter-clockwise direction.
You can immediately see the Utah Olympic Park ski jumps in the distance.
Part of the path has stones to help avoid walking in mud during Spring run off. This is the small stream.
Most of the time you will have a nice view of Kimball Junction.

Some of the very happy faces from Run-a-Muk! Well, one doesn't look too happy.
