Hiking in Big Cottonwood Canyon

Big Cottonwood Canyon

Getting There: East on 7200 S (SR190) in Salt Lake County
Entrance Fee: None Dogs Not Allowed
Notes: Big Cottonwood Canyon was an early source of lumber for the Mormon pioneers. Many of the side canyon were named after their mill designation (Mill B, Mill D, etc), the initial operator of the mill (Butler, Whipple, Tanner). Mining later played an important role, resulting in more canyon names (Cardiff, Silver, Mineral). There is a large variety of hikes in this canyon. It’s a SLC watershed canyon, so no dogs are allowed.
