Hike to the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge, Draper, UT

The Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge (aka Draper Suspension Bridge, as the locals call it) is located in Draper, UT and is an easy 2 mile RT hike for the whole family - dogs included! While this is an ON leash trail, don't let that deter you from walking across this 185 ft long bridge as you take in the views of both the city and Wasatch Mountains. The trail itself is very well signed, and very popular especially on weekends.

Hiking to Matt's Arch & Meridian Peak Meridian Peak (5,978ft) is small peak in North Salt Lake along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and just north of Ensign Peak. The main trail also takes you past Matt's Arch (aka "Industrial Arch") - a tiny natural arch made of limestone. There are trails all over, making this a "choose your own route" hike. I decided to turn my route into a 5 mile loop, and since there was barely any snow on the trail the day I hiked it, it was a perfect Winter hike. Safe from avalanches, only a few bikers, a handful of other hikers, and not hot like it normally is in summer.
