STRAVA SEGMENT TITLE : “BST - Zoo 2 City Creek stay high”

"My favorite way to ride it starts from the Hogle Zoo Trail Head (found across from the Hogle Zoo’s
east edge) and ends in City Creek Canyon. This version give you a variety of climbing, simple
technical features, as well as one of the most ripping descents finishing in City Creek Canyon
directly above downtown Salt Lake City - just be sure to be courteous to those coming up the
trail. You’ll also witness the best views of the SLC Valley taking in downtown, the Wasatch range
highlighted by Mt. Olympus, as well as the Oquirrh Mountain Range to the West, and as far down
as Draper City." -Thomas Bender, professional cyclist
