day hike to rudy's flat via north fork in city creek canyon (with bike ride)

This activity will provide unique views of City Creek Canyon and Little Black Mountain from the north. Traditionally, Rudy's Flat is often approached from Mueller Park. However during this hike, we will approach it from City Creek Canyon. ** ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL REQUIRE A BICYCLE WITH A CABLE LOCK! ** We will start across from the State Capitol building and slowly bike about 5 miles up the paved road in City Creek Canyon to the entrance of Rotary Park / Picnic Area #24. There is an elevation gain of approximately 1000 ft for this biking portion. From there, we will hike up the infrequently used North Fork Trail to Rudy's Flat. The hiking portion gains approximately 1500 feet in 1.7 miles. We will then return to where we parked our bikes and cruise down City Creek Canyon back to the Utah Travel Council.
